The festival is organized into four groups that rehearsed together on Friday and then took part in concerts on Saturday that were open to the public.
SEMSBA is a festival that students must audition for.

She also said that it was her “last festival of high school,” and that “it was an incredibly emotional and wonderful experience.” She said that she “will truly never forget it,” and that she would “10 out of 10” recommend SEMSBA to fellow music peers.
