Our 14th annual DC High School Choir Festival will take place on Wednesday, January 30th at the Washington National Cathedral.

We are thrilled to have Maestro Steven Fox as our Festival Director this year. Fox is our newly appointed Music Director as well as the Artistic Director of New York's GRAMMY-nominated Clarion Orchestra and Clarion Choir. 

The Festival will begin at 1:00pm and end around 8:30pm. Festival activities will include a combined choir rehearsal with Maestro Fox, Soprano/Alto and Tenor/Bass sectionals, rehearsal time with each individual choir, a group activity, and a spaghetti dinner.

Our concert is always free and open to the public! The concert will begin at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00pm) in the Nave of the Washington National Cathedral.
