Students and choirs!
Massed Finale and Individual Ensemble Performances – Saturday, May 6, 2023
All registered singers will come together in a massed finale featuring music selected by America Sings! at the iconic Fox Pointe Amphitheater in Lansing, Il led by the renowned clinician and educator John Jacobson. All singers will celebrate their weekend of song and service with music and dancing. Choirs have the option of performing a 15-minute individual performance at the Fox Point Amphitheater. Space is limited so these individual performances are allotted on a first-come basis.
Opening Rehearsal and Entertainment – Friday, May 5, 2023
On Friday evening, John and some of his talented friends will lead the entire group of participants through a rehearsal of the massed-final music and choreography. Also, we will be joined by special guests to perform for the participants.
Due to the generosity of the Chicago Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau, we are able to offer this wonderful event for a discounted registration to all participants. Chaperones and Directors are counted as participants to be granted access to festival facilities.
