The Ball State University School of Music is pleased to announce the 2nd Spring Shout Songwriting Competition, open to all Ball State students ages 18-27. Song material must be your original work and you must be a musician.

Take advantage of a unique opportunity to perform with your band at Be Here Now. Don’t have your own backing band for your live performance? No problem! Use our MMP Studio Band (drums, bass, guitar, and keyboard). The event will be adjudicated by Ball State Music Media Production Faculty and a surprise judge. There will be a jury prize and an audience vote, so bring your friends!
