Choir: Wartburg College Choirs
Date & Time: 01/21/2019, 09:00 am
Dr. Lee Nelson and Dr. Nicki Bakko Toliver are pleased to begin accepting nominations for the 2019 Meistersinger Honor Choir Festival at Wartburg College, featuring the music of composer Abbie Betinis! Ms. Betinis will be in residence for the festival, and will work with the festival participants on her music. Wartburg will also welcome the St. Michael-Albertville High School Concert Choir under the direction of Joe Osowski as the featured guest choir. The two-day event will take place Sunday, January 20-Monday, January 21, with the finale concert taking place at 5 pm in Neumann Auditorium on the campus of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa.
New for 2019, the festival will offer two singing opportunities- the Meistersinger Mixed Honor Choir under the direction of Dr. Lee Nelson, and the Meistersinger Treble Honor Choir, under the direction of Dr. Nicki Toliver. The finale concert has also been moved up to 5 pm to allow students, families, and directors to get on the road sooner and arrive home earlier on a school night.
For more information about the festival and to nominate your students, visit www.wartburg.edu/festivals. Nominations are due midnight on Sunday, December 2. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. We look forward to hosting your singers at Wartburg for the 2019 Meistersinger Honor Choir Festival!
