High School Choral Festival
Each October, University of Wisconsin-Platteville hosts the High School Choral Festival. Hundreds of high school choristers from the Tri-State area convene for a day of rehearsal and performance with each of UW-Platteville's single-gender choirs, Coro D'Angeli, and Singing Pioneers. Emphasis is placed on fostering camaraderie as well as a lifelong love of the choral arts. Concurrent with rehearsals and break-out activities for students, sponsoring teachers also benefit from continuing education interest sessions and workshops. The festival culminates with a performance in the evening, wherein each combined gender choir of high schoolers and college students is showcased alongside the three UW-Platteville mixed choirs.

Led by conductors Matthew Gregg and Patty Schlafer, students will spend the week diving into new music, working with professional musicians, and meeting new friends. This is an excellent opportunity for students to work with other gifted young musicians from across the tri-state area. We hope to see you there!
