Purpose – to attend the annual MICCA Festival.  Students will perform for a panel of adjudicators and receive feedback on their performance in a clinic following the performance.  Equally as important (if not more so) is the listening we will do for the remainder of the day.  It is our expectation that students will be attending these performances until the bus departs for our return trip to Newton South.
