Coming up in February are the Treble and Concert Choir Festivals. All of the top women choirs and mixed concert choirs from the South Suburban Conference will be attending these festivals.

The location for the Treble Festival changes every two years. This year, the five-hour Festival is being held at Rosemount High School on February 10th.

My favorite part is hearing the other choirs and giving our kids a chance to perform and get immediate feedback.”

— Mr. Cox

The Treble Festival is an event where a variety of choirs sing for each other. They alternate their performances and receive feedback from clinicians across the Midwest. The clinicians work with each group and provide valuable assessments to help improve every choir and help them on their way to success.

Mr. Cox, a choir teacher at EHS, describes his favorite aspect of the festival, “My favorite part is hearing the other choirs and giving our kids a chance to perform and get immediate feedback.”

Soon after the Treble Festival, the Concert Choir will attend their own festival on Wednesday, February 25th. The top South Suburban Conference mixed men and women’s concert choirs will be at the festival.

The Concert Choir Festival is separated into a morning and an afternoon event. Choirs participating will each take a turn performing and then they will receive constructive criticism.

Clinicians are chosen from around the state to participate and help the choirs. The South Suburban Awards for Vocal Music are given out at this event.
