Festival Highlights Concert - Friday, May 15, 2015
This is a chance to hear and see some of the best instrumental, vocal and dance performances from Musicfest Northwest's weeklong festival. Adjudicators from  nine Musicfest divisions choose their favorite performers to be highlighted in this special concert. Free admission.

Since 1946, Musicfest Northwest (known as "The Festival") was organized to encourage, develop and improve the performance of young musicians and dancers through professional adjudication and aid young people to study music and the arts. Entrants in the Festival receive an individual written and oral evaluation of their performance by qualified teachers and concert artists. The public is welcome to enjoy over 1,000 performances by varying age and skill levels Sunday through Friday on Gonzaga University campus and learn from the adjudicators' comments and master teaching.

The Board of Trustees of Musicfest Northwest expresses its appreciation to Verne Windham and KPBX 91.1 FM for many years of continued support to the festival: Master of Ceremonies for our evening concerts, Live studio performances of Musicfest Northwest participants, Recording and broadcasting evening concerts and generous on-air promotion.
