Elementary Choral Festival was held on February 14 and 15, 2019 at Piedmont Church.
Elementary Choral Festival was held on February 14 and 15, 2019 at Piedmont Church. General music teachers from elementary schools choosing to participate brought chorus performing groups for comments and scores.
Choirs from schools all around the county were able to attend the festival. They performed two songs chosen from a list of song choices for the judges, who scored them with ratings as well as providing constructive comments for both the singers and their conductor (teacher). This year’s judges were Christa Joy Chase, Charlie Tigue, and Nancy Whittenburger.
After singing, choirs were able to work with guest clinicians brought in specifically to listen to their performances and then give them more immediate constructive feedback. This year’s clinicians were Lori Van Lenten and Mary Hoffman.
Many thanks to this year’s co-chairs, Colleen Crotty (Garrison Mill ES) and Pete Bush (Kincaid ES).
**Upcoming events: High School Choral LGPE (March 7 and 8, 2019) and Middle School Choral LGPE (March 14 and 15, 2019). Both events will be held at Piedmont Church.
