Circle the State with Song – Area 8
February 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Each year, IMEA announces the repertoire for the Festival at the beginning of the school year and music educators spend months preparing their students for the festival events in February and March. Each of the 12 designated areas of the state has an Area Coordinator that promotes the Festival and recruits school to participate. To date, IMEA has commissioned seven pieces of choral music for the festival choirs. The challenging repertoire helps elevate the music instruction at the participating schools, and it also provides an exciting and culminating experience for the youth. During the festival, the participating schools rehearse and perform together under the director of a highly experienced Clinician.
