JH/MS State Choral Festival
State Choral Festival is an educational opportunity designed to encourage your students to develop their performance. You and your students will have the opportunity to hear some of the most advanced and accomplished choirs in Michigan. The adjudication team will provide assessment but not a rating. These adjudicators are nationally recognized master choral clinicians who are selected for their outstanding and engaging work with choirs.
