The TRL recognizes outstanding musicians as determined by the judges at the end of the day.

Every band is being professionally recorded. Additionally, all judges will be making taped comments.

West Linn has a nice Performing Arts Center. The public is welcome and the Festival is FREE to the public. Unfortunately, they do not have good parking. For parents coming to listen, you might have to walk a bit because of the lack of parking. It opens up A LOT after school gets out at 3:15. It's also chaos from 3:15-3:30 on the streets surrounding the high school, so please avoid arriving during this time slot.

There will be light concessions if your kids get hungry. Candy, water, etc. All proceeds go back to the music dept.
