What is the Virtual BandFest Competition? Watch the short video below to find out!


Engadine Music has been running an annual BandFest since 1995 and it is a shame that we’ve been unable to hold our annual festival since 2019. Our BandFest each year aims to give students a public performance in a friendly, encouraging, and fun environment. Engadine Music has partnered with Yamaha and Hal Leonard to hold a competition for school ensembles all about fun and entertainment! That's right, not the quality of the recording, how much fun the performers have and how entertaining it is for us to watch. 

Check out all of our submissions from last year on our YouTube PlayList, click here!
