Federated Festival

NFMC Festival in Gwinnett County MTA Festivals


The National Federation of Music Clubs is designed to promote study, stimulate interest in American and world music literature, and encourage each participant to reach a high standard of musical achievement.

Festivals are designed for ALL members of the NFMC. It is not a competition but an opportunity to perform and receive evaluation. The rules are set by the NFMC and all Festivals are administered by the respective State Federation of Music Clubs in accordance with the rules that appear in the Festival Bulletin.

The Gwinnett County Music Teachers Association holds three festivals annually, divided into three distinctly different districts: North, West and Central.
