Here's what workshop participants have to look forward to in 2018:


High school choirs will participate as a choir in workshops supported by the collegiate and post-collegiate choruses and other professionals.  Workshops will be on topics that will help choirs improve their performance, help students improve their individual performance, or learn more about a Cappella.  Each high school ensemble will have a 45-minute performance coaching session with members of the Cantus ensemble, our headline act for the day.  Other performing clinicians include MnSU's Vocal Precision and UW's Fundamentally Sound, award-winning quartet, Hi-Mark, along with Rochester's own Gambit.


In order to give all choirs a performance opportunity, we will have multiple concerts throughout the day.  The final concert line up will appear on the tickets page on 10/15.  All concerts are open to the public and will be in the Mayo Civic Center auditorium.


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Southeastern Minnesota Art Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.  Additional funding comes from the  Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust.  

Additional sponsors for 2018 include:  Kohl's, IBM, Mayo Clinic Community Fund, Microtel, Minnesota Public Radio, People's Co-op Operation Roundup, and the Rochester Music Guild.  For the complete list of donors, see the Sponsors page.
