15th Annual Choral Celebration at MSU Denver

Dear Choral Colleagues,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 15th Annual Choral Celebration at MSU Denver!  Next year’s festival will be held on Nov. 1 and 2, 2018.

This fall choral festival is held for traditional high school choral ensembles of any configuration (mixed, women’s, men’s, madrigal/chamber groups, etc.).  Choral ensembles of any size will have the opportunity to perform in the King Center Concert Hall on Thursday, Nov. 1, and on Friday, Nov. 2, smaller ensembles will perform in the Recital Hall while larger groups perform in the Concert Hall.  The emphasis of this festival is to educate, encourage, and motivate your choral ensemble to continue their musical growth throughout the school year. It is our hope that your singers will leave feeling inspired by their own musical potential!

The registration fee of $95 per choir includes the following:

  • A performance in the King Center Concert Hall or King Center Recital Hall.
  • A professional audio recording of your ensemble’s performance.
  • A digital video recording of your performance.
  • An on-stage clinic with MSU Denver choral faculty and/or guest clinicians immediately following each ensemble’s performance.
  • Observation of performances and clinics by other high school ensembles.
  • Performances by MSU Denver ensembles.

Registration will open on Monday, August 13 at 8:00 am, and the festival fills up very quickly!  An important change for 2018:  only one group from each school will be allowed to register on the first day. If you would like to bring a second group, please register them on August 14 or later.

As an example of how scheduling works, the 2017 Choral Celebration schedule is still published – find it under the “Schedule” tab. For future reference, we cannot confirm specific time assignments before the publish date, although we will make every effort to accommodate all groups. Priority will be given in the order that registrations are received. Due to high demand and our desire to include as many schools as possible, only one group from each school may register.

Communication will take place primarily via email and through our website: http://sites.msudenver.edu/choralcelebration/

If you have questions, you may contact MB Krueger, Director of Choral Activities by email at kruegema@msudenver.edu.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2017 Choral Celebration. We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Choral Celebration!
