Southwestern is honored every year to host an exclusive Music Festival for high school and academy musicians. The festival features three festival ensembles: a 400-voice choir, a 90-piece symphonic band, and a full symphony orchestra. In addition to the festival ensembles, elite musicians may audition for a Music Festival Scholarship. Students that audition have the chance of being selected as a Scholarship Finalist.
