Back in 1983 the Dixie Classic Festivals were formed. The festival is open to all performance arts groups including (concert, band, choir and orchestra). This type of open festival is to inspire the growth and artistic expression. Although the festival gives out awards it is purely on a non-competitive basis.They are judged by a group of nationally known adjudicators.

Atlanta happens to be one of the six locations for the festival this year. Hickory High School Orchestra from Chesapeake, VA will be performing in the Dixie Classic Festival on Friday, April 12th. They are staying at Artmore Hotel this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited. We wish them luck and applaud them for their dedication to the Arts.
