SingFest! is an annual one-day festival comprised of rehearsals, workshops, a director’s reading session, and a concert performance alongside Georgia State’s University Singers. Students from various high schools in the Atlanta region come together as one choir in downtown Atlanta to make great music in the Southeast’s richest cultural center and perform in the historic Rialto Center for the Arts in this intensive honor choir.
Two of our Caravel music students, Katie Doyle and Riley Hearn, participated in the 2020 SingFest. Katie and Riley participated in sectionals and group rehearsals to learn the song "Hope Lingers On" by composer Andrea Ramsey. They also attended sessions called "Music in the Real World - Paths in the Music Industry" and "Introduction to Beatboxing." A session was offered about majoring in music in college, and the day concluded with a Q&A with composer Andrea Ramsey and a final virtual performance with everyone who attended the event.
Katie says, "SingFest is a wonderful opportunity for young singers. Not only do students learn a piece, but they can learn about how musicians operate in the real world and how music stretches beyond just school choir."
Riley adds, "Singfest is a great opportunity to meet great teachers and music composers. There were so many students and everybody got to share their opinions and ask questions and on top of that, we all got to come together and learn a beautiful song!"
Mrs. Anderson enjoyed watching how professors and graduate students structured a day of music making. She also loved participating in a music reading session for all of the music teachers. Mrs. Anderson hopes to find more events like this in the future for Caravel students to have the opportunity to keep making music while we are apart.
