News Blog Category - News This Saturday, hundreds of students from our region — including dozens of Marion Community Schools students — will gather as part of the Indiana Music Education Association’s 29th annual Circle the State with Song festival.

About 420 talented young singers from elementaries, middle schools, and junior high schools in Adams, Grant, Huntington, Kosciusko, Wabash, Wells, and Whitely counties will spend the day working with guest clinicians — a chance to build their skill as singers — and then will put on a special performance together. This concert will start at 3:30 p.m. at the Honeywell Center, 275 W. Market St., Wabash; it is open to the public, and tickets are $3 (free for ages 5 and younger). Tickets are available at the door, or online (click here).

The festival — which is held at several different sites around the state (this year from Feb. 10 through March 10) — exposes young singers to new music and gives them the chance to have a choral experience quite different from the regular school class or performance. Altogether, about 5,000 students around the state participate in this annual festival series.

After weeks of practice on their own and at their schools, students will spend most of Saturday rehearsing the concert selections with a guest clinician at the Honeywell Center. At our region’s festival, the elementary clinician is Julie Gray from Indiana Creek Elementary School in Indianapolis, and the middle school clinician will be Dan Andersen from Center Grove Middle School Central.

The Circle the State with Song began in 1989 as a choral festival for elementary students. In 1991 it expanded to middle school and junior high students. Not only does it provide students the chance to sing challenging choral pieces with peers from around the area, it also provides music teachers an opportunity to observe and learn from the clinicians, and to network with colleagues from around the area.

IMEA’s mission is to support and advance music education in Indiana by representing the united interest of music educators and students and by providing professional leadership and service in music education to enhance the arts in the schools.

Come out to the MHS spirit shop on Dec. 13 or 14 between 3 and 7 p.m. and pick out the perfect gift! The Marion High School Alumni Association will be staffing the shop during these times.

Proceeds help fund the many ways MHSAA helps to support Marion High School and Marion Community Schools. (They've given tens of thousands of dollars directly to school and extracurricular programs over the past few years, and they've raised more than $200,000 for the Giant Dreams Endowments at the Community Foundation of Grant County to help provide for the needs of Giants today and long into the future!)

If you can't come to the shop, you can place orders for some of the gear online: www.mhsalum.com/giants-spirit-shop. (NOTE: Delivery may not be guaranteed before Christmas. Please contact the individual printers for more information.)
