CCC Music Festivals

The music department at Clackamas Community College has orchestrated quality music festivals since 1971, bringing high school students from all parts of the Northwest to the CCC campus to perform and compete. The college now hosts several festivals, giving some 75 schools and thousands of students the opportunity to perform in the Niemeyer Center for the most prestigious of judges - professionals at the top of their respective fields! See below for specific information about festivals, including applications, directions, and results from the previous year's festival.
