Meet the Composer Festival 

This is an annual two-day event in Des Moines that brings young central Iowa singers and a professional composer together for learning and fun. Singers in grades 4 - 8 are welcome to participate along with invited SATB choirs. An internationally known composer serves as the in-residence clinician and conductor for the event. The composer's own music is the focus of the festival.

The conductor works with students throughout each day, and at the end of the day, the singers deliver a public concert. 

The dates for the 2018 Meet the Composer Festival are April 6 - 7. Our guest artist will be Iowa composer Elaine Hagenberg.
