This was the 75th anniversary of the Iowa All-State Music Festival sponsored by the Iowa High School Music Association and the Iowa Music Educators Association. District auditions for the 279-piece All-State Band, 198-piece All-State Orchestra and 601-member All-State Chorus were held in October. Approximately 17% of the students who audition are selected for membership through a rigorous audition process for the All-State ensembles.

Participants rehearse in Ames during the All-State Festival in November and performed at the Festival Concert in Hilton Coliseum, Iowa State University, Ames.
