|Welcome to the 2017 Festival!Welcome to the EIGHTH year of the NRH2O Music Festival for Middle School Bands and Orchestras, and Elementary Choirs! With 30 years of experience as a music educator and as the retired Director of Fine Arts (Birdville ISD), I learned there are very few quality outdoor competition options available for our ensembles. Our music festival has been designed with YOU in mind. Coming off the heels of our highly successful seventh year with over 19,000 participants, our festival promises to be educational, organized, inexpensive and most importantly… FUN! With the help of long time middle school band consultant Cindy Lansford, we have put together an event with everything you could want! Take a dive into our website…the water is GREAT!
