The University of Wisconsin-Superior will host talented high school singers from throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota for the 37th Chorfest High School Honor Choir Festival on Thursday, November 11.
“Chorfest is unique among high school honor festivals because it allows students to perform choral works with an orchestra consisting of some of the best musicians in the Twin Ports,” said Michael Fuchs, UW-Superior director of choral activities. “This is an opportunity that is not available in many high schools and smaller communities, and we are thrilled to provide an avenue through which students from the region can experience this wonderful music.”
This event, which gets underway at 9 a.m., will include more than 50 students from eight area schools. The number of student performers is being kept lower this year to allow for social distancing.
Featuring a day of rehearsals, tours and masterclasses, conductors and clinicians include Fuchs, and UW-Superior colleagues Vicki Fingalson, professor of voice and director of opera workshop, and Jeffrey Madison, senior lecturer of voice and music history.
The event concludes with a concert at 7 p.m. in Thorpe Langley Auditorium. Chorfest participants, along with UW-Superior singers, will perform “The Awakening” by Joseph Martin and “Gloria, RV 589” by Antonio Vivaldi.
This concert, which will also include professional orchestra members from the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and Twin Ports community, is open to the public. Tickets, which can be purchased with cash or check at the door, are $5 adults, $3 seniors and free for students. Thorpe Langley Auditorium is in Old Main, 1710 Weeks Ave.
