Iowa All-State Music Festival
The annual Iowa All-State Music Festival provides an opportunity for outstanding high school
musicians from across the state to come together and work with festival directors to present
a concert at Hilton Coliseum in Ames. Students qualify to participate in the Festival by
auditioning at a regional audition center.
The audition center for Ames High School students is at Indianola High School. 2021 information will be posted as soon as it is available.
In past years, the Festival concert has been recorded by Iowa Public Television and
broadcast on Thanksgiving.
