Holly Kittredge, a Chesterton High School junior and flutist in the Chesterton High School Band program, performed this past week in the 57th annual Indiana High School All-State Band Festival hosted by Indiana Bandmasters Association (IBA).

Each student earned this honor by participating in a highly competitive audition held early in January at nine centers across Indiana. Seven hundred talented young musicians applied and auditioned. A selection committee then reviewed the recorded auditions from each center. One hundred seventy-three outstanding students from fifty-two high schools were selected to perform in two different ensembles at the 2018 Festival. Daniel Tembras, Director of Bands, at Indiana University/Purdue University (IUPUI) Ft. Wayne, directed the 85 member Indiana All-State Band. All members participated in a series of activities including seating auditions, sectionals, and full rehearsals from Friday Sunday. Their weekend concluded with a Grand Finale concert presented to the public on Sunday at Elliott Hall of Music on the Purdue University West Lafayette campus.
