"This was Sleepy Hollow's first time attending the Fantastic Festivals. We brought a large group of 165 students and found the adjudicators to be very professional, positive, and encouraging. The Fantastic Festivals staff was very flexible and accommodating for our large group! This festival is highly recommended for music programs who are looking for a competitive yet educational experience. We had an awesome time!"
Gail Persad, Sleepy Hollow Middle School, NY

"Fantastic Festivals has been a fun, effective, and uncomplicated festival experience for our students and for us as teachers. The adjudicators have been fair and friendly, and have always provided our groups with meaningful feedback. Highly recommended!"
The Thompson Brook School Music Faculty, Avon, CT
