Students, directors and chaperones will spend 5 days (4 nights) interacting with other choirs from the U. S. and abroad. Activities will include social events as well as massed choir rehearsals. Each choir will participate in the final concert in the beautiful Newman Center individually as well as part of the massed festival choir and in Sunday morning services for local churches.
For the reasonable cost of $560 per person, quadruple occupancy, ALL lodging, meals, and activities are included. Individuals will also receive a festival t-shirt, and choirs will receive a commemorative plaque. The tentative festival schedule and an application form are included in this document, as well as links to our incredible performing arts center and our directors. Our festival also includes a conducting workshop with Dr. Catherine Sailer, Director of Choral Activities at the University of Denver, and an administrators’ idea exchange.
We encourage you to apply early. Choirs will be accepted on a rolling admission basis until the festival capacity is reached. If you wish to come early or stay after the festival, we can make arrangements for you to extend your stay. As you have heard, Colorado is a beautiful place to visit in the summer!
