Mark your calendars for Songbook Academy 2024:

Now in its 15th year, the Songbook Academy® is a national summer music intensive for young singers interested in the classic Broadway tunes, jazz standards and popular songs known as the American Songbook. Forty talented high school students are selected by a national audition process to participate in a life-changing week of learning alongside entertainment industry professionals, award-winning singers and performers, and educators from top university music programs. Songbook Academy 2024 will take place July 13 - 20, 2024.


Public Events:

Lauded by Pattern magazine as “one of the beating hearts of Indy's music scene,” the Songbook Academy is a highly anticipated event for audiences at the local and national level with live and livestreamed events throughout the week. Highlights include a Public Masterclass led by celebrity mentors and Great American Songbook Foundation Founder Michael Feinstein, a music showcase featuring solo performances by all of the talented students, and a dazzling final concert rivaling those of the professional artists who grace the Palladium stage year-round. Tickets for this concert and the free public events (dates to be determined) throughout the week will go on sale in May 2024.
