NIMCon Music Festival 2020

March 7, 2020

NIMCon Music Fest was formerly known as Organization Contest. 

Information Packet


  • Brandenburg Concerto
  • Misty
  • Folk Trilogy

Chaperones Needed

If you are available to chaperone, let Mr. Broach know asap ( Also, we might need a van to follow us with large instruments.


Why do musicians have a dress code for concerts? The goal is to keep the focus on the music and to limit distractions for the audience. If most performers adhere to a dress code and one performer only has brightly colored gym shoes and white socks, it draws unwanted attention away from the music. So, to limit distractions we ask all performers to wear…

  • Orchestra Polo
  • Black Dress Slacks / Long Skirt
  • Black Dress Shoes & Socks (no gym shoes)
