Choral Festival

Join us for Morehead State University's 60th Annual Choral Festival for High School Singers. The festival takes place on Monday and Tuesday, November 11-12, 2019.
We will have two honor choirs: an SATB Chorus directed by Dr. Jeffrey Redding, West Orange High School, Florida, who is the winner of the 2019 Grammy Music Educator Award and an SSAA Chorus directed by Dr. Sandra Babb, choral music professor and women’s choir conductor at Oregon State University. This may be a “once in a lifetime” opportunity for your students to sing under the direction of such esteemed conductors.  Your students will have a great time learning during their two days with us!
Our clinicians have selected repertoire that they feel your students will enjoy rehearsing and performing. They have included a wide variety of styles. Each choir has pieces that will be attractive to your own choirs.  I believe your singers will greatly enjoy working on this music.
Download the registration form, save it electronically, and then send it to our MSU Choirs email address: Please return your registration form to us by September 17. My suggestion would be to send it earlier to assure a place for your singers.
Order your music early and rehearse it with your students. We need your singers to arrive well prepared for the festival.  Stanton’s has the music in stock for you with the exception of the pieces which need to be secured from the websites listed on the flyer. Please announce the solo competition to your students and help them prepare early. 
We had a fabulous festival last year with our two-choir format. I hope you and your singers will choose to be with us this year and make our 2019 Choral Festival even better!
Thank you for your support!
