The Music for All National Festival, presented by Yamaha is under way, and we’ve heard plenty of wonderful music already. The Honor ensemble students have been participating in rehearsals and sectionals at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis since Wednesday morning, and they continued bright and early this morning.
Invited ensembles started arriving yesterday, and they will continue to arrive throughout the day today prior to the high school and middle school opening sessions this afternoon. The High School Opening Session begins today at 1:00 p.m., and the Middle School Opening Session is at 4:00 p.m. It’s always exciting to see all festival participants gathered together in one place for this opening event.
We’ll also have a special session for Parents today at 2:45 p.m. to talk about their important role and what they can expect for their students throughout the week.
This evening, National Concert Band Festival Concerts begin at Clowes Memorial Hall starting at 5:00 p.m.
We’re thrilled to have so many talented student musicians on site, and we look forward to the wonderful music we’ll be hearing the rest of this week and weekend!
