  • We do adjudicated festivals to receive feedback and expose ourselves to what else is out there. Whether we receive the highest rating (Superior) or the lowest rating (Very Good), we will ultimately get better by looking at the ratings, listening to the comments, and using the feedback to improve as an ensemble. That is the point!
