This festival is part of the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA) Conference held in Hartford, Connecticut. About 250 fourth through sixth grade students from across the state worked with Craig Knapp, a nationally renowned conductor/educator, and performed in a concert at the end of the festival day.

A select group of Plainville fifth and sixth grade band members were also chosen to participate in the Honors Band for Instrumental Music students in grade 4-6 throughout the state of Connecticut at the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA) Conference. The students spent the day working with composer Rob Grice and participated in the world premiere of a piece titled The Steel Mill, dedicated to the first Steel Mill in Connecticut being built in the early 1700s. Under the direction of Plainville Community Schools' music faculty members Barbara Senatore and Michael Boncimino, the students worked diligently to learn the music in preparation for this extraordinary musical event.
