During pre-session time at Congreso, student bands will express their gifts and abilities as they minister and offer praise to God. Christian student bands of varied musical styles are encouraged to apply. Conference expenses (travel, housing, meals, registration, etc.) incurred by student bands are the responsibility of the band and not Congreso. A screening committee will review all applications and demo CD’s received. Bands selected to be featured at Congreso will be notified by April 6, 2015. Due to programming restraints, a limited number of student bands will be selected and featured. There will be no competition among the bands. Neither awards nor financial compensation will be offered. The sole purpose is to offer praise to God, platform varied youth band musical styles, and to be encouraged by their peers.
