Program Notes

Dedicated to the Garden State Symphonic Band, Chris Pederson Jr., Conductor.

- Program Note from score

(Back Home Again in) Indiana is a song composed by James F. Hanley with lyrics by Ballard MacDonald that was published in January 1917. Although it is not the state song of Indiana (which is On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away), it is perhaps the best-known song that pays tribute to the Hoosier state.

Traditionally this song is presented during the pre-race ceremonies before the Indianapolis 500. For years, Louis Armstrong would open every public performance with this number.
