The Huron Area Junior Music Festival will be held on Sunday at Huron High School beginning at noon.
More than 200 entrants will be performing in piano, voice, strings, guitar, woodwinds and percussion events.
The event is sponsored by the South Dakota Federation of Music Clubs, an affiliate of the National Federation of Music Clubs.
The festival program is designed to promote study, stimulate interest in American and World music literature and encourage each participant to reach a high standard of musical achievement.
It is not a competition, but an opportunity for all students to perform and receive evaluation.
Participating area teachers include Beverly Bigge, Eric Bliss, Ann Boyd, Laurie Hamm, Kristi Kattner, Geri Peterson, Cathy Ramsell, Brenda Ruedebusch, and Barb Valer, all of Huron; and Beth Neitzert of Cavour. Bigge is the Huron area chairperson.
