About the Biennial Music Festival

This festival is one of Milwaukee Public Schools’ largest events and involves thousands of students across the district from a wide range of grade levels participating in a number of musical ensembles.

The Biennial Music Festival brings together students from all MPS schools in a musical concert performance for the public every two years. Each festival allows for approximately two thousand students to participate in the program. Participating groups include elementary, middle school, and high school choruses, bands, orchestras, jazz ensembles, swing choir, drumline, and drum circle.
