Workshops: Workshop invitations will go out in May, 2018. Contact us if you wish to participate.
Here's what you have to look forward to in 2018!
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 10/1. If your school has an evening conflict (e.g. school musical) you may request to be included in an early afternoon concert. We will also align your master class to ensure students who can't stay for the full day of workshops and concerts can still participate in the master class.
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, along with Rochester's own Gambit.
Each choir will receive a light snack in early afternoon plus supper. There will be a mass event in the early afternoon just prior to the snack.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from MSAB thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural Heritage fund. Additional funding comes from the Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust.
