The Source Song Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota re-imagines the song festival with concerts, recitals and masterclasses, but its mission also aims to empower and inspire a new generation of musicians.  Source serves duos, composers, and audiences with five days of programming, fostering relationships within Minnesota's community and musicians throughout the Upper Midwest.

Marquette's own Griffin Candey, an opera and concert music composer (who has premiered commissions with both the Marquette Choral Society and Marquette Symphony Orchestra), attended the Source Song Festival in August of 2019 and has graciously agreed to report back with Public Radio 90 and Classiclectic host Kurt Hauswirth, to discuss what Source Song Festival is and what it means to his music craft:
