|Originally established as the Phillips Band Day in 1932, the annual Tri-State Music Festival now brings over 12,000 elementary, middle, and high school students to Enid to perform and compete across many musical disciplines, including jazz, pop, show choir, orchestra, and several others. Despite the current success and long-term sustainability of the festival, the organization was forced to make crucial changes within the last 10 years in order to survive. Hear how the organization approached board development, strategic planning, and the development of new community partnerships to ensure that the Tri-State Music Festival would remain a first-rate education experience for future generations. |
