The HSGA Virtual Festivals will continue and be produced twice a year. Our next Virtual Festival was originally planned for June, 2022, with a March 1 deadline for videos to be submitted by participating members.
This is to advise you that the deadline for submitting videos has been extended until April 15, and the next Video Festival (VF3) will be broadcast on the weekend of July 9. The online performer application is now available on the HSGA.org website. Depending on the number of videos received, the Festival may be scheduled for one or two days. Each participating member is allowed up to 15 minutes of performance time.
This Video Festival will include many more selections from our HSGA video archives, featuring some of our favorite performances from 2003 to 2010. Once again, we look forwarding to sharing our music with each other.HSGA
