Iowa Lakes Community College Will Host Show Choir and Jazz Choir Festival

By Staff | Jan 19, 2016

On Tuesday, Jan. 26, and Wednesday, Jan. 27, twenty-four Show Choirs and Jazz Choirs from area high schools and middle schools will be coming to Iowa Lakes for the Annual Iowa Lakes Show/Jazz Choir Festival. The choirs will be performing for two clinicians Clay Blackman from Omaha is returning again this year to work with the show choirs, and Tim Watson, Choral Activities Director from Morningside College, will be working with the jazz choirs. The clinicians will then give the groups on-stage feedback to help them prepare for all of the performances that high school show and jazz choirs have throughout the spring. Please feel free to come anytime during the day to watch the groups perform. There is no cost to attend. Show choirs will be performing in the gymnasium and Tuesday’s jazz choir performances will be held in the auditorium on the Estherville campus. Performance schedules are listed below. For more information please contact Brett Fuelberth, Vocal Music Professor, at (712) 330-1145 or bfuelberth@iowalakes.edu, or Linda Kautz at lkautz@iowalakes.edu or 712-362-8345, or visit www.iowalakes.edu/music.
