The Gifford Elementary Music Staff is considering hosting an SA choral festival focused on choirs for elementary aged singers. The festival will be in May or early June 2014. We will have a parade of choirs, each singing 1 or 2 pieces on their own and two combined festival works.
Composers Wallace DePue, and Brian Holmes have been commissioned to write original works for the festival to be performed by all who attend.
We are looking for directors who are interested to help us tailor the festival to the broader community. We are most interested in school and community choirs that perform regularly in 2 or more parts and use live accompaniment. Accent Choir directed by Mr. Timothy Keith Griffin Jr. and The Gifford Children’s Choir directed by Mr. Jack Senzig are the host choirs.
Gifford Elementary school has a theater that seats around 450 people and several music rehearsal spaces. Gifford is in Racine, WI. Contact Mr. Senzig at jon.senzig(a)RUSD.org for more info or to share your ideas. You can also comment here.
