2014 spring festival

 

As you are planning for your choir year, we hope you will consider participating in the 6th annual Choristers Guild Festival on Sunday afternoon, March 23rd.

We will be posting the repertoire list with audio links for the festival, and the venue is being finalized and will be announced shortly.

Deadline to register is March 16, 2014.  If late registration or payment is necessary, email Katy Lundeen: KLundeen24 @ Hotmail.com

 

We are thrilled to announce this year’s guest directors:

Nancy Jones-Gray, choral director for the award-winning Poway High School Choirs will be directing the Youth Choir, and

Henry Leck, founder and director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir will be directing the children.

Click on the image above to get a copy to print!

If you are new to our festivals, a quick explanation:

  • The two age groups are, roughly, 1st-5th grade for the children’s choir, and 6th-12th grade for the youth choir. Age ranges are flexible, and depend on how you group your choirs. These ages are just a guideline.
  • This is a prepared festival. The elementary-age kids should come with the music memorized, and the teens may use music but need to be familiar with it.
  • We bring in world-class directors to work with your kids, so it is well worth the preparation time for the kids to have this opportunity.
  • The children will sing two anthems, the teens will sing two anthems, and there will be three combined anthems. Because there are no individual choir performances, this is the ideal event for small choirs, choir programs just starting out, or even individual singers who would like to have a wonderful choral experience!
  • Think you will have trouble finding the choir time to teach the music? We will offer a couple of group rehearsals to familiarize your kids with the music.
  • Think you will have trouble fitting the music cost into your budget? Ask us about music sharing. We will help you get the music you need!
  • Think the music is too challenging? We can help you with lesson plans and strategies. Just ask! We’re here for you!
  • Is the cost a challenge? At just $5 per child, we offer the best musical education bargain in San Diego.

Below, please find the 2014 Choristers Guild Spring Festival Repertoire.

Please let us know how we can help and encourage you in your choral adventures this year!

Sincerely,

Katy Lundeen and Robin Segarra San Diego Choristers Guild
