Festival Choir consists of singers who have established good vocal technique, are good sight readers, can hear dissonant harmonization and are willing to make a twice a week commitment. Singers are only admitted into Festival Choir after one to two year membership in Children’s Choir 2 or Chamber. Festival Choir members must also maintain a membership with either Children’s Choir 2 or Chamber Choir. A greater emphasis is placed on music history, foreign language, advanced choral technique and accelerated music theory. This choir often performs publicly and is responsible for a large repertoire. Festival Choir attends at least one overnight retreat per year and participates in both domestic and international tours. Rehearsals are Monday nights from 6:15pm-7:30pm.
Festival Choir was established in 1994 and was formed because of the size restrictions that were placed on choirs participating in choral festivals at the time.
