Contemporary Music Festival
52nd Annual Festival, October 2018
The Contemporary Music Festival committee at Indiana State University is excited for the upcoming 52nd Annual Festival, scheduled for October 24–26, 2018! The featured festival guest composer will be Marc Mellits who will be joined by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra as orchestra-in-residence. Guests will also include the Orchestra Composition Contest winner, Roger Zare, and Music Now Contest winners Shawn Crouch, Jennifer Bellor, Nick Revel, John Costa, and Christopher Evan Hass. In addition to guests, the festival will feature the students of the School of Music in both chamber music and large ensemble settings. Almost the entire student body will be involved in the festival!
