Choral Celebration

Choral Celebration

Mandatory Rehearsal date: Monday, March 26

Applications for our 20th Raleigh Fine Arts Society Choral Celebration will be available in the Fall .  We hope you will consider applying for the 2018 program.



In 1999 The Raleigh Fine Arts Society began a new tradition: an annual Choral Celebration, a project offering choral groups in grades 4 through 5 in Wake County Schools a chance to share their music as well as enjoy the successes of other elementary school choruses. Their choral directors receive comments from qualified adjudicators. 

The first performances were held at Martin Middle School and moved in 2001 to Meymandi Concert Hall. Since then the Choral Celebration has received much greater visibility within the Raleigh community and achieved record attendance of over 3,000 people. There are 16 elementary choral groups performing, with each performing two songs. This opportunity for some students is a once in a life time experience: singing in the state-of the-art concert hall home of the NC Symphony. Performances are free and open to the families of student performers.
