Chamber Choir Collegiate Choral Festival Invitation
This year, the Grissom Chamber Choir has been invited to perform in the Alabama Choral Directors Association’s annual Collegiate Choral Festival on Tuesday, November 14th at Trinity United Methodist Church (607 Airport Rd SW, Huntsville AL 35802). The Collegiate Choral Festival is similar to our State Choral Performance Assessment, yet is designed for college choirs to participate in. Rather than being adjudicated, each of the college choirs are given 20 minutes of 1-on-1 time with one of the clinicians in a workshop-like experience. To my knowledge, we are the first high school in Alabama history to have been asked to participate, a tremendous honor for our program and school. A more in-depth letter (along with a Digital Permission-to-Travel form) was handed and emailed out to Chamber Choir families this past Thursday morning. Please see that letter for all information concerning this opportunity!
