Join us for Chamber Choir Festival!
East Grand Rapids HS, East Grand Rapids
Varner Hall, Oakland University, Rochester
Our Chamber Festivals encourage ensemble singing and sharing of ensemble literature. These non-adjudicated events provide a concert arena for performance by middle, junior and high schools. Participating ensembles share and learn together and from each other.
There is no required piece for participation. Select music appropriate for solo and ensemble festival. Participants are encouraged to sing at least one selection a cappella. Performance should be 15 minutes or less.
The number of participants in each group should reflect the character and style of ensemble music. The recommended guideline is between 4 and a maximum of 24 performers.
Schools may send a maximum of two groups.
Ensembles performing in Chamber Choir Festivals must be seated in the concert hall for the duration of the Festival. This is an educational experience for all participants. Ensembles that do not attend the Festivals as listeners are subject to sanctions from Festivals by the MSVMA Board.
For more information, contact Director of Specialized Festivals Lyn CieChanski at lynciechanski.msvma.org.
