Art Hildebrand Music Festival

We are excited to announce that the Art Hildebrand Music Festival, formerly known as the Little People’s Festival, is now a part of the Northern Illinois Music Conference! Run by Hilary Logan at Sunset Rudge School in Northfield, the intent of this festival is to allow bands and orchestras an opportunity for a performance and clinic without the adjudication of contest. It is designed for younger ensembles, or ensembles that do not meet daily or meet in parts coming together for performances.

General Information

Please check the website for contest site information as well as the Rules & Procedures and Rubrics. We are looking forward to a successful contest season! Please continue to send us your feedback!
