Choral Valley non-competitive choral festivals are open to ensembles of all ages and abilities, community or school groups, singing all types of music. The focus is on learning and sharing and to that end, feedback will be provided by the clinician in written and verbal form. No “marks” will be given.
The timing of the festivals is that there is a Fall Festival in November and a Spring Festival in March. Pieces may be “in process” as opposed to “performance perfect”. The festival’s purpose is to provide an opportunity for growth, in musical learning and performance experience in a supportive setting, with the hope that this growth may be integrated into upcoming end-of-term more formal performances.
The format for the festival is that each choir will be on stage for 40 minutes. In that time, 3 selections will be performed and the remaining time will be spent working on-stage with the clinician. Participating choirs are encouraged to listen to and support the other choirs. At the conclusion of the festival day, a simple, easy-to-learn mass piece will be sung by all choirs.
