The initial days of sending information and talking with band, orchestra, and choral directors has been tremendously productive. Most of the groups are making tentative reservations until they get school board approval, although most directors don’t foresee any problems.
The thing that makes us most grateful is who is booking our festival. As of today, most of the groups who have committed early are groups who have attended our new Panama City beach Music Festival in 2015 or 2016. We can’t express in words how tremendous that makes us feel. We always promise to take good care of every group who attends, and to make sure you have lots of fun and always well fed. I hope that means we’re doing what we promised.
The April 27-29 is our first festival weekend in 2017, and it has a tremendous amount of interest. If everyone comes who is saying they’re coming, we’re going to have to try to rent the auditorium a few extra hours. The May 11-13 weekend has more interest than years past, so we’re pretty sure it will fill as well. Whatever we have to do, we’ll make room for YOUR group, so give us a call or email us whenever you’re ready.
