BERRY COLLEGE ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL CHOIR FESTIVAL


Berry College will host the second annual Middle School Choir Festival for students in grades 7-8. We will also be adding an Elementary Honor Choir for unchanged students in grades 5-6. Students from across the South will enjoy a day on the beautiful Berry College campus in choral rehearsals and workshops with Elementary Honor Choir Guest Clinician, Mrs. Emily Williams Burch, and Middle School Honor Choir Clinician, Dr. Stefanie Cash. Choir participants will also have the opportunity to work with Berry faculty and students. At the conclusion of the Festival, the students will present a concert of choral works, showcasing the talent of the students. Come join us for a wonderful day of learning and inspirational music.
