Mississippi State University and Hinds Community College are excited to welcome you to participate in our 2023 MSU-Hinds CC Solo and Ensemble Festival!

This festival is open to students grades 8 through 12 and to community college students.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to expand their musicianship skills by performing a solo or in a chamber music ensemble with their friends for feedback from professional musicians and teachers.
