Who should my ensemble reference be? You should ask peer directors, clinicians that have worked with your ensemble or other evaluators who are most familiar with your music program and can write on behalf of your ensemble's quality over an extended period of time. Our evaluators are looking for programs that consistently perform at a high quality.
