SCSBOA Ratings Festival
What is it exactly?
SCSBOA stands for the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association. It’s a mouthful, I know. This organization hosts multiple ratings festivals at different schools throughout the year. The ratings festival means that your ensemble will be judged by three different judges on your performance and you will also be led into a separate room where you will be assessed on your sight reading capabilities as a group. This is a good experience for students to experience the tension that comes with being judged and also observe the level of the surrounding music programs in our district.
