The Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association (MSBOA) District Band and Orchestra Festival is an opportunity for ensembles from MSBOA member schools to perform a program of three pieces for adjudication.

District-level festivals are held throughout the state's 16 districts from mid-February through mid-March. Trenton Public Schools are members of MSBOA District 12.

Each performing ensemble is evaluated by three performance adjudicators and one sight-reading adjudicator. Each performing group is rated on a scale from "1" to "5" with "1" being the highest rating possible. The overall score is computed using a formula that combines the ratings of each judge.

Participating ensembles that earn a rating of "1" or "2" at District or State Festivals receive a certificate and plaque for display at their school and medals for each student.
