2016-2017 Festival

The 2016-2017 Circle the State with Song Festival is the 29th year that the Indiana Music Education Association has provided an opportunity for Indiana Learners from throughout the state to participate in this choral music festival! This year, we are providing even more opportunities for students and teachers alike to participate:

  • Schools in areas 4, 4a, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8a and Indianapolis are no longer bound by caps.  They may bring as many students as they wish, keeping in mind balance and quality as much as possible.
  • We have launched a new Indianapolis site at Northwest High School at the end of February open to any school in the Central Indiana area who wishes to participate at it!
  • We’re providing a limited number of pre-recorded CDs to teachers who are unable to play back recordings in their classroom via the internet due to connectivity problems.

We hope these changes will make Circle the State with Song a festival that everyone wants to participate in for years to come!
