MPS Choral Festival – Free!
Tuesday October 24 @ 7:30 pm
The Sonoran Desert Chorale, co-sponsor of the Mesa Public Schools Choral Festival along with The Mesa Arts Center Foundation, invites you to the Festival’s evening concert. The event is free and open to the public. It’s a great evening with the top choirs of the Mesa High Schools each performing several numbers, a performance by the Chorale, and then a joint performance of all the MPS choirs, including the 11 junior high choirs, and the Chorale in a combined piece. It is incredible to hear as many as 800 voices raised in song.
On that Monday afternoon, the junior high school choirs perform and each meets with a clinician who conducts a brief master class with them. It is a great opportunity for the students to work with an accomplished choral musician.
The Chorale supports the Festival by providing the funding for the clinicians, providing volunteers during the day to assist with getting everyone to their assigned locations on time, and performing in the evening.
Come join us for a lovely evening, support these students, and enjoy the beautiful sounds of young people in song!
