Harry Clarke High School Brass Quintet Competition
Established in 2013, the Harry Clarke High School Brass Quintet Competition is for current high school students enrolled as full-time high school students. Participants do not have to all attend the same school. All quintets must play the same piece, Exultate Jubliate (Scarlatti/arr. Dovel) which can be downloaded for free here.
Participants will compete for a panel of judges at 12:30 pm at the beginning of BrassFest.
The winning brass quintet will receive a prize and will also perform on the 4:00 pm BrassFest closing concert.
