Each participating choir will benefit from an Adjudicated Performance of their prepared music. After each performance, COA’s Adjudicators will provide performance reviews, along with written ratings and notes. Choirs will also be scheduled for an Observational Opportunity (watching another choir perform), and will enjoy a full One-Hour Clinic with one of COA’s Master Clinicians.

The day will also feature engaging workshops for ALL participants. Scheduled workshops include Broadway 101 with Tyrick Wiltez Jones and XChange – A Meeting of Voices (during which each participating choir will have the opportunity to sing for other choirs from across the country).

Friday, June 16, 2017 – Concert Day

Today, COA’s Master Conductor, Doreen Rao, takes over for fun and educational Massed Choir Rehearsals.

Following rehearsals, all participating ensembles will perform during an amazing Prism Concert in world-famous Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall. All participating choirs will perform as part of one of the massed choirs during the concert, and each participating ensemble will also have a “Spotlight Performance Opportunity” to perform on their own. It will be spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime event!
