WSU Educational Choral Festival
The WSU CHORAL FESTIVAL IS BACK!
The 2021 WSU Choral Festival will take place Saturday October 30, 2021
The Vocal/Choral Area within the School of Music sponsors the annual Educational Choral Festival at Washington State University each fall designed to assist high school and junior high/middle school programs in providing an early, motivational opportunity for musical growth in a non-competitive, positive environment.
The Educational Choral Festival is meant to excite, encourage, and educate students, developing a spirit of camaraderie and commitment. As an early festival, we offer the opportunity to receive feedback from respected clinicians who will help identify technical/expressive projects, involve your students in setting goals for the year, and provide real contact time with you and your choir.
Each participating choir has the opportunity to perform in a WSU concert hall and work exclusively with one of our clinicians. Your singers will be encouraged to try new ideas and work towards high musical standards and towards their goals.
Following your performance and clinic, each participating choir will receive comments from the clinicians, a recording of your performance, goals discussed during the clinic, and a certificate of participation in the Festival.
In addition to the personalized clinic your choir will receive at the Choral Festival, other opportunities for learning and musical growth are available. Throughout the Festival day, you and your students can attend the performances of other participating choirs and attend the exciting performances that are offered by the WSU voice faculty and students.
The WSU Choral Festival will be held on Saturday, October 30, 2021. Performances typically begin around 9:00 a.m. in Kimbrough Concert Hall and continue throughout the day. The concluding concert will be held in Bryan Hall Theatre, across the street, at 5:00 p.m. The concert will conclude around 6:30 p.m.
For more detailed information regarding the WSU Choral Festival will be forthcoming later this summer.
