You know it's festival season when you're at work at 6:00 AM waiting on buses of bands, orchestras, and choirs it arrive! I actually like hosting festivals and I've done it for ten years now at UNO. It takes tons of organizational work, but is always worth it for recruiting and fellowship etc. The LMEA (Louisiana Music Educators Association) large group choral festival is held here annually. I have hosted a Performing Arts Consultants festival for the past seven or eight years. I especially love that one because the folks who come down to run it are terrific. Many springs, we've also hosted the World Strides / Heritage festivals. New Orleans is also in "Festival Season".
