In 2022, Area 11 hosted a composition contest to create an Area-wide Anthem. After narrowing down the top three compositions with a blind vote, our board selected “Joyfully Ring” by Doug Benton as the winning composition.

We are delighted to share this anthem with you.  There are three versions: 5 Octave, 3 Octave, and 2 Octave. Choose the version that is best for your ensemble. Print, share, and perform at your local, state, and area events.  When we gather together for our Area-wide festivals and camps, we will play this anthem together.
