Junior All-State Band
The Ninth Annual Junior All-State Band Festival will be held Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 12, 13 and 14 during the Indiana Music Education Associaition (IMEA) Professional Development Conference in Ft. Wayne.  The finale concert will be featured on Saturday, January 14 as part of 2017 IMEA Conference.  This will be an exciting opportunity for 100 outstanding students in grades seven through nine.   Questions may be directed to the event coordinators: Rob Shaver or Candi Granlund. Students must verify their availability. We ask that students not apply if they cannot make a commitment to attend the entire Junior All-State event.
Selection Process
A selection committee will review the auditions using a “blind” format.  Student recordings will be assigned a number and the listener will not know the student’s name or school.  Please confirm your students’ availability for the entire Junior All-State event.  Students must participate in 100% of the event activities.
