About MFA National Choir Festival
As one of Music for All’s many programs, the National Choir Festival shines a national spotlight on outstanding choirs, providing educational programs, and spectacular musical experiences for singers in a positive, supportive environment.
A non-competitive, supportive experience
The non-competitive atmosphere of the MFA National Choir Festival provides a place for growth, cooperative encouragement, and mutual respect among music programs, students, parents, boosters and administrators.
Directors select their own programs; there is no required repertoire. There are no ratings or rankings so directors and their ensembles are free to stretch themselves, reach for new heights and strive for innovation, growth, and excellence, instead of focusing on a rating or placing.
Participating students experience an atmosphere of mutual respect while enjoying concerts from other outstanding ensembles. The Festival’s dress code and standards of conduct enhance the world-class atmosphere of the Festival. Ensembles that perform at the Festival are recognized as being among the finest in the nation. Participation is a “credential” worth having. The preparation process itself for the Festival can have a positive effect on your music program.
Music for All is honored to have the support and involvement of many music organizations. The final choir concert with orchestra will be in one of Indianapolis’ finest concert venues. Master classes are presented by leading applied faculty and artists.
