Poway High School (PHS) and the PHS Instrumental Music Program are proud to host the annual Poway Band and Orchestra Festival every April at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA) on the PHS campus.

The three-day festival presents talented middle school and high school ensembles from the Poway Unified School District (PUSD), as well as, from other Southern California communities. They performed before a distinguished panel of Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) judges. In addition to festival performances, sight-reading adjudication was held for many of the ensembles.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Poway Band and Orchestra Festival was not held in April 2020. Please visit this page in early 2021 for an update about the Festival.
