Join us for this non-competitive performance opportunity dedicated to fostering choral community within two-year community college choirs. Bring your singers to share their song and connect with other community college singers across the state of Illinois. We welcome 13-20 minutes of performed repertoire from each participating choir. Each performing ensemble will receive a professional level video recording free of charge. Ensembles are encouraged to stay for the group sing portion of the festival, during which Dr. Irene Leites (Black Hawk College) will teach by rote Malakatumba by Josu Elberdin (SAB). No advance preparation for the group sing is required.
