Choir Sharing Festival

The Choir Sharing Festival is presented by the Music Division and the Southeast Chapter of Kodaly Educators.  It is an opportunity for elementary and middle school choirs to perform, observe other choirs and directors and sing a mass choir piece in a combined chorus with students from around the region.   This is not an adjudicated event or competition.  Each choir performs two songs, one of which must be from the Choir Sharing Festival Approved Music List.  Following the choir's performance, the guest clinician works with the singers for a few minutes.  The director receives written comments from the clinician and the students receive encouragement and affirmation.

The 2019 Choir Sharing Festival will be held Wednesday, May 8, in the Auditorium of the UTC University Center. Our clinician will be Edie Taylor from Knoxville, Tennessee. The festival will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude by 1:00 p.m. The public is invited.  

The mass choir piece this year is "Love is Love", a round by Abbie Betinis from the Justice Choir Songbook Volume 1. Sharing is free as part of the Justice Choir Songbook. All choirs participating in Choir Sharing should learn this piece.
