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

We are thrilled to announce this year's festival director: Dr. Thea Kano. 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. She is really looking forward to the event! 

This year we have 11 participating youth choirs in addition to the DC Youth Orchestra Program's Young Virtuosi. During the festival, students will participate in a massed rehearsal and sectionals, take a tour of the cathedral, enjoy a group dinner, and perform in a concert that evening. (Our concert is free and open to the public!)
