Choral Festival for High School Singers

Join us for Morehead State University's 62nd Annual Choral Festival for High School Singers. The festival takes place on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 14-15, 2022.

We will have two honor choirs: an SATB Chorus directed by one Dr. James Rodde, Director of Choral Activities at Iowa State University and an SSAA Chorus directed by Dr. Meg Frazier, Director of Choral Activities at Loyola University New Orleans. 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. The SATB Chorus will be one of the first choirs to perform Elaine Hagenberg’s new piece, “Measure Me Sky!" scheduled to be published in mid-August. Both choirs will be assisted by our MSU percussion students. Each choir has pieces that will be attractive to your own choirs and I know your students will enjoy working on this music.

You can download the registration form, save it electronically, and then send it to our MSU Choirs email address: moreheadstatechoirs@gmail.com. Please return your registration form to us by Sept. 15. It is recommended that you 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 Sheet Music Company has the music in stock for you with the exception of “He’ll Make a Way” which is ordered through the composer’s website.

Please announce the solo competition to your students and help them prepare early.

We have had fabulous festivals in the past with our two-choir format. I hope you and your singers will choose to be with us this year and make our 2022 Choral Festival the best ever.
