Davis High School will host the annual Symphonic and Concert Bands Adjudication Festival from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.

The Harper Junior High seventh-grade band takes the stage from 9 to 10 a.m., followed by seventh-grader at Da Vinci, Emerson and Holmes junior highs from 10 to 11 a.m. The DHS Concert Band takes the festival to the noon break.

After lunch, the DHS Symphonic Band kicks off from 1 to 2 p.m., followed by the Harper eighth-/ninth-graders from 2 to 3 p.m. and the Da Vinci-Emerson-Holmes eighth-/ninth-graders from 3 to 4 p.m.

The music ranges from band classics to new compositions performed under the direction of Tom Slabaugh, DHS band director; Clyde Quick, music director at Emerson; and Nancy Sanchez, band director at Harper.

Ritchie Hodge, former band director at Oakmont High School, and Meryl Wamhoff, dean of arts and communication at Delta College, are the judges for this festival and will provide constructive feedback on each band’s performance.

The festival also features smoothies and juices from Jamba Juice and food from The Hotdogger throughout the day, with a portion of the proceeds from the food sales going to the band program. Admission is free.
