Choral Art Festival

The Choral Art Festival was instituted in 1995 to provide a positive and helpful non-adjudicated festival experience for Choral programs in the state.  Directors may choose participation at Choral Art or the State Performance assessment (SPA).  Directors also have the discretion to bring selected groups to the festival that they feel are not ready for District Festival participation.  Choirs will receive helpful suggestions from well-respected judges in a non-threatening and non-competitive atmosphere. Judges provide written comments of each performance.  One or more judge will work with each choir or ensemble following their performance. 

Choral Art Festival is an annual event sponsored by the Mississippi Music Educators Association.
