First held in 2015, the Kennesaw State University Orchestra Invitational is a unique event offering high school and middle school orchestras the opportunity to perform in one of the finest acoustical concerts halls in Georgia – Morgan Concert Hall at the Kennesaw State University Bailey School of Music – and receive assessment-based feedback from a nationally-recognized guest clinician and KSU faculty. This non-competitive format enhances the educational experience for students and directors. In addition, each ensemble receives professional quality audio and video recordings of their performance.
Here's what one director had to say:
"I wanted to send a quick thank you for accepting our group to play at KSU this past weekend. This past weekend is one that I will never forget and I know that my students feel the same. Being afforded the opportunity to come to visit the KSU campus, play in that wonderful hall and to receive the feedback we received is truly a blessing and will help our group as we prepare for the next event, whatever it may be. The professionalism of all that were involved from being met as we arrived until we left for the trip home was outstanding. The students did a great job of making sure we were well-taken care of and the facilities were outstanding."
