Key Chorale’s Sarasota Choral Festival is a community event open to singers high school age and older. Last year 200 voices participated in the festival and this year Key Chorale is delighted to present the Festival as part of the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota’s two-week celebration of arts and culture, InspireSarasota!  Artistic Director Joseph Caulkins extends his personal invitation to all of Sarasota’s choral groups to join our celebration of choral music in this important community outreach.

It is a perfect opportunity for singers who are unable to commit to a full season of choral rehearsals and concerts, for choral groups that want the opportunity to sing with a larger vocal ensemble, and for those who do not wish to audition to join with other choral groups and the 100+ voices of Key Chorale. The festival format includes the opportunity for private voice coaching sessions and informational programs in between rehearsals on the concert day. All singers high school age and older are invited to participate by registering online or calling 941/321.7372. Registration is open through October 10, 2016.
