A Silver Dollar City Music Summit event can help bring your performance year to a successful and rewarding conclusion.

This is an opportunity for your music program to receive year-end assessment and constructive suggestions from an outside panel of experienced instrumental and choral educators. These master teachers evaluate hundreds of ensembles throughout the spring, giving them a unique perspective. Whether presenting a new concept or reinforcing the basics you instruct every day, this feedback can have an impact on the musical growth of your students.

The visibility of a festival performance promotes the importance of music education in your community.

Advocacy is increasingly vital to the life of school music programs. The recognition award earned from a festival performance is a posititve representation of the value your community places on music education.

Preparing for Silver Dollar City Music Summit helps student motivation and retention.

Along with achieving your educational goals, a year-end festival performance can provide motivation to your students for musical growth beyond the final concert presentation. An annunal festival trip is a reward that also helps with recruitment and retention in your program.
