Whew! What a week! Over 250 singers enjoyed meeting their directors and new friends (or reconnecting for some of our returning singers), and a week full of singing, dancing, drama, and more at Choralfest 2017. Choralfest is our annual summer camp that kicks off our season. This year, we have our largest choir in 10 years and after this week, we are even more excited for the coming season.
The week culminated in a FREE concert on Friday at the Foellinger Theatre. What a turnout! Over 1,000 people came out to support our singers. This year’s theme was Wild, Wild West, and our singers enjoyed singing western themed songs– from Buffalo Gals to Songs of the Cowboys, Red River Dances, Old Dan Tucker, and many more favorites. At the end of the evening, over 25 alumni joined us on stage to sing Happy Trails.
Special thanks to our directors, guest instructors, Youth Chorale helpers, and parents who assisted last week. We could not have done it without you.
