Honor Choir Festival Fall 2023!
Friday and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 7
The School of Music is excited to host the Northwest High School Honor Choir Festival in October 2023. Join us on Friday, Oct. 6 and Saturday, Oct. 7.
We are thrilled to announce our featured guest conductor, Anthony Trecek-King, associate professor of choral music and director of choral activities at The Hartt School, University of Hartford and a resident conductor with the Handel and Haydn Society.
The Northwest Honor Choir Festival brings the best high school singers from Western Washington together each year. Over the course of two days, students make music with some of the country’s leading conductors and educators.
Held on the University of Puget Sound’s beautiful campus, this intensive musical learning experience involves rehearsals and workshops led by our featured conductor and Puget Sound faculty. The festival culminates in a collaborative public concert with the University of Puget Sound's award-winning choirs.
Teachers are asked to nominate advanced singers in balanced quartets only: Schools may send up to five quartets. Music will be mailed to teachers/conductors upon receipt of completed application. Students should practice to be familiar with the music. Cost for the two-day festival is $35 per student and includes complimentary lunch on Friday for students and attending faculty members. Fee is non-refundable, however, students may be substituted.
We look forward to welcoming the region's high school students for this annual event!
