The festival runs from May 9-11 at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.
Nearly 1,000 Michigan high school student-artists have been invited to attend this year’s festival. The students, chosen from a pool of more than 250,000 across the state, are selected via a rigorous adjudication process adhering to exacting artistic standards. The invited scholars represent multiple artistic disciplines, including creative writing, dance, video, instrumental and vocal music, music composition, theater, and visual art.
This year marks the 57th anniversary of this three-day event, which features workshops and master classes for the students, alongside more than 20 student performances and exhibitions that are open to the public.
