In early 2016, a survey of directors of participating school ensembles in the 2015 festivals was conducted. This group of respondents was then expanded to invite all ensemble directors of schools in partnership with IMSS. This was again further expanded to include all schools, including schools in the independent sector.
From the responses, support for a new direction for the festivals was made clear for the ABODA WA Committee to explore.
