The Festival - Goal and Description

Come to Saint John’s………


Saturday, September 29, 2018

9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


  • Especially designed for high school singers.
  • Teachers/directors are invited and expected to sing next to (with) their students.
  • Focus on 3 or 4 ‘styles’ of music.
  • Performance is NOT the goal for the day – although we will end the day singing together.
  • The festival will continue to focus on literature for TTBB and SSAA, but the schedule/design allows more time to learn more about the specific styles.
  • The music will lend itself both for performance by a full choir or small ensemble.
