This is a festival for the younger or Intermediate choirs in larger children's/youth community choirs in New Jersey.  

The 4 choirs that are participating are: Newark Boys Chorus, the Quarter Notes (Princeton Girlchoir), Coro Vivo (boy choir in New Jersey Youth Chorus and Sola Voce (girl choir in New Jersey Youth Chorus).  Each choir will come prepared to sing 2 songs and have a clinic on those pieces with our guest conductor, Dr. Brandon Williams, Rutgers University.  Dr. Williams will also rehearse the combined choirs in a piece that he chose: A Festival Alleluia by Mary Lynn Lightfoot.  At the conclusion of the day, each choir will perform their repertoire and finally all the choirs will combine to sing A Festival Alleluia with Dr. Williams conducting.  

This is a wonderful opportunity for Choral Methods students to observe a master teacher working with young voices.
