What is the Choral Festival and Gala

Choral Festival
High School and Middle School choirs perform for the guest clinician and receive specialized instruction. Those individual choirs are then featured in the Gala Concert performance that night.

Gala Honor Choir
Students sing dynamic choral repertoire in a mass honor choir conducted by the guest clinician. Students come together from schools from around the region and join university students in this group choral experience.

Vocal Instruction
Students will also have the opportunity to receive instruction on vocal technique in sessions lead by collegiate voice faculty.
