HOW IT WORKS

Who will be there?
Boys in grades 2-12 from all over Madison and beyond who sing in a choir already (school, community, religious, other) or are just interested in being part of a fun day of singing with other boys. Participants will be divided into three festival choirs by grade level. Festival staff includes Margaret Jenks, Michael Ross, Randal Swiggum, Lisa Kjentvet, Madison Youth Choirs.

Again this year! Our high school singers will also work with guest singers from the Madison Choral Project, Madison's professional choral chamber ensemble. 

What do I need to bring?
Just your voice! Music,  snack, pencil, and a festival T-shirt will be provided!

What will we do?
Learn about and sing some great music, have fun, meet other young musicians, and perform in a concert.

What about this concert?
Have you ever seen a concert with over 400 boys singing? You will! Our final concert will feature all of the festival choirs along with some Madison Youth Choirs' ensembles in a choral extravaganza. 

How much does it cost?
Singers in grades 2-5: $5 per singer
Singers in grades 6-12: $25 per singer
