College of the Canyons Hosts Community College Choir Festival
The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons will be filled with harmonies when five choirs perform at the second annual Community College Choir Festival on May 1.
Choirs from Harbor College, Citrus College, Glendale College, Fullerton College and College of the Canyons will perform for 10 minutes and will be judged by Dr. Rob Istad, conductor of the University Singers and Chamber Choir at California State University, Fullerton.
This free event is the second annual Community College Choir Festival and will begin at 6 p.m.
"Choir festivals give the students an opportunity to sing for their peers, hear a wide variety of repertoire, and leave with many helpful and constructive comments,” says Julie Lawson. "We learn more about ourselves and the music we're singing every time we get the chance to perform."
As each choir prepares for their end-of-semester concert, Dr. Istad's comments will provide each choir and director with a list of suggestions for improving tone, pitch, articulation and balance.
The festival is open to the public.
