With Indiana’s long tradition of talented composers, singers and pop stars – from Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter to the Jacksons and Axl Rose makes Elkhart an established music event such as the Elkhart Jazz Festival a natural tie to the state’s history. The Bicentennial Commission’s endorsement will elevate plans to feature Hoagy Carmichael during performances and place emphasis on songs like “Back Home Again in Indiana,” “On the Banks of the Wabash,” and others with significant meaning to Hoosiers during sets.
