Central Coast Spring School Choral Festival
Cal Poly Performing Arts Center March 22 and 23, 2018 10am-9pm
Sponsored by the San Luis Obispo Vocal Arts Ensemble
The Spring School Choral Festival, now in it's third decade, provides a professional, adjudicated experience for school choirs to rehearse, perform, and receive feedback on their performance from professional judges, in the world-class environment of the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center's Harmon Hall. The objective is to improve the quality of musicianship and stage presence of these groups while giving them exposure to the University and its music programs. Vocal Arts Ensemble welcomes between 35 and 50 school choirs each year, a mix of elementary schools (5%), middle schools (40%) and high schools (58%), from ages 7-18 years of age. Schools are mostly from San Luis Obispo County, with some choirs coming from Santa Barbara County, the Central Valley, and a few from as far away as the Bay Area and Los Angeles. This is a mix of private school, inner city public schools and rural public schools, representing a very diverse group of school age children, many of who might not otherwise get to see the inside of our Performing Arts Center, let alone perform on its stage. No Purchase Orders will be accepted.
