About the Festival

IMACF LogoThe first Indiana State University Music and Culture Festival will showcase artistic traditions, both past and present, from China, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Hungary, and the United States.

The Festival will feature guest student and faculty presenters traveling directly from ISU partner institutions: Shenyang Conservatory of Music, China; Mahidol University School of Music and St. Gabriel’s School, Thailand; An Giang University, Vietnam; and University of Pécs, Hungary.

Also featured will be student and faculty presenters from the ISU Colleges of Education, Arts and Sciences, and Technology, representing the departments of African American Studies; Art; Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics; Textiles, Apparel, and Merchandising; Theater; and the School of Music.

Festival events will take place from March 12–15, 2019, with evening events Tuesday through Friday and daytime events Thursday and Friday. Support for the festival comes through the ISU Center for Global Engagement, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Music.
