Dear Satori Music Festival Participants,

With the Grand Prize competition finished, the 2020 Satori Summer Music Festival has officially come to a close!
First and foremost, we would like to give a special thanks to all the parents, students, and teachers  who partook in our first completely virtual event. We realize that not everything has gone smoothly, so we thank you for your continued patience while going through this arduous and unprecedented process with us.
We would also like to take some time to thank everyone involved in organizing the festival this year. Our festival more than doubled this year with 1000 entries. Although we are ecstatic that so many new friends are joining our community, it was a logistical challenge to judge, process, and deliver all of the awards. Without our dedicated, small team of hardworking staff, this festival would not have been possible. The larger than expected number of entrants coupled with a wildfire that burned mere miles away from us made for an exhausting month of organizing that our staff handled with grace.

Grand Prize Winner:

Although the circumstances were unusual and we faced no shortage of technical difficulties, we are immensely proud of all of our talented students for their powerful performances. Our judges have never been more impressed. So they had an extremely difficult time choosing the Grand Prize winners. Ultimately, they compiled a list of the best of each category, here is the your 2020 Satori Summer Music Festival Grand Prize winner:
