Thirty-five schools will participate, which will represent many of the communities in Androscoggin, Cumberland and Oxford counties. The students will participate in one of four ensembles: a high school band, high school orchestra, middle school band or middle school orchestra.

The cost of admission is $5 per person or $10 per family. Each ensemble will be led by a guest conductor. The participating students were required to audition for the festival in October and have spent the last month preparing.
