From January 17-19, the Indiana Music Educators Association will hold its annual state-wide conference at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. The group returns to Fort Wayne for a third-straight year.

During the three-day conference, IMEA will host more than 20 performances at several venues around Fort Wayne, including the Embassy Theatre, Allen County Public Library and First Presbyterian Church. The Grand Wayne Convention Center will host conference meetings, concerts and training sessions.

The highlight of the conference is a performance by the Mr. Jack Daniels Original Silver Cornet Band. The band will hit the Embassy Theatre stage on Friday, January 18 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for admission are $20 for adults, $17 for students and seniors, and $15 for groups of 20 or more.

The Fort Wayne Community is invited and encouraged to attend these events throughout the weekend, many of which are free.

The event will bring more than 3,000 teachers, professors and students from across Indiana, and an estimated $900,000 in economic impact to the community.
