Next week Ball State will host music lovers nationwide for the third annual “Music for All” symposium.
The event welcomes thousands of high school band students and directors to a series of nightly concerts that allow participants to learn from nationally renowned musicians.
High school students will have the chance to work with the nation’s top music instructors in concert, marching and jazz bands, as well as orchestra, percussion, color guard and drum majors. Professional educators are going to be available to network and share strategies with high school and middle school band directors.
Ball State students and Muncie residents can get involved by attending the events throughout the week.
Monday through Thursday bands will perform at 8 p.m. in John R. Emen’s Auditorium.
Drum Corps International takes the stage at 7 p.m. in Scheumann Stadium on Friday, where eight of their top corps will showcase their works for the 2013 season.
The final day of the event will be June 29 when all student tracks will have their final performances at various locations around campus.
