UNH Choral Gala

UNH Choral Gala



JANUARY 27, 2024

registration will be posted here

The UNH Choral Gala is an all-day choral festival open to all high school choruses.  Join the inclusive community of singers that make up UNH Choirs for the day, connecting with students from across New England who also love singing.  The Choral Gala seeks to provide an outstanding performance opportunity, positive and supportive atmosphere, and foster relationships between singers and ensembles.  In addition, students will have the opportunity to take voice lessons from the UNH Voice Faculty, and a scholarship may be awarded to study voice at the University of New Hampshire as a music major.  The event culminates in an evening performance in the Johnson Theatre of the Paul Creative Arts Center.

Each visiting chorus will have the opportunity to perform 2 pieces of their own on the Johnson Theatre stage if they wish, and this will open the concert.  There is no requirement for visiting choirs to perform on their own. The UNH Chamber Singers will perform as well, and then all students will join together for the concert finale, which is comprised of four choral pieces that will be prepared in advance and rehearsed throughout the day.
