Two sessions are planned: Morning (9:30am-11:30am) and Afternoon (12:30-2:30pm)
Treble choirs will have an opportunity to participate in a non-competitive event and receive feedback from master clinicians. Choirs will perform individually, listen to other treble choirs, and unite in song at the conclusion of the event. Our goals are to further develop children’s musicianship skills, nurture a deeper appreciation of the choral art through performing, listening and communal singing, and foster a life-long love of choral singing. In addition, participating choral directors will have the opportunity to grow professionally and artistically by receiving comments and feedback from master clinicians.
Participation is limited to six treble (grades 3-8) choirs (three per session). Registration deadline is March 1, 2018.
Each participating choir will present two songs of choice during their 20 minute time slot. A master clinician will offer a brief clinic to each choir and director following their performance.
A piano and risers will be on stage. The time slot includes getting on and off the risers. Participants are responsible for providing their own accompanist.
The culminating combined choir piece is the traditional canon, Dona Nobis Pacem, set to an accompaniment by Margaret Tucker.
