More details on the 14th annual DC High School Choir Festival coming soon...

Our 13th annual DC High School Choir Festival took place Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 at the Washington National Cathedral.

We were thrilled to have Dr. Thea Kano as our guest Festival Director. Kano is the Artistic Director of the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington D.C. and Founder/Artistic Director of the New York City Master Chorale. 

This year we had 10 participating youth choirs in addition to the DC Youth Orchestra Program's Young Virtuosi. During the festival, students participated in a massed rehearsal and sectionals, took a tour of the cathedral, enjoyed a group dinner, and performed in a concert that evening.

Our concert is always free and open to the public!
