2005 Concert Choir Tour to New Orleans

Tour Dates: 

June 17- June 21, 2005

Concert Choir has been accepted to participate in the Crescent City Choral Festival in New Orleans, where we will have opportunities to perform both individually and as a massed choir with the 12 participating choirs. The Artistic Director of the festival is Cheryl Dupont, the conductor of the New Orleans Children’s Chorus.  Bob Chilcott (composer, past member of the King’s Singers, and adjudicator for our own Golden Gate Festival as well as many other festivals worldwide) will be leading the massed performances with Ms. Dupont.  We will be premiering a piece by Chilcott specially commissioned for this festival. There will be daily massed rehearsals with the finale performance at the historic St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square.  The musical opportunity of this festival combined with the destination are quite exciting.  There will also be time to enjoy the sights and sounds of New Orleans with a dinner cruise on the Mississippi River, a chance to hear the Preservation Hall Jazz band in a private performance, a visit to the Aquarium of the Americas, and time to explore the Riverwalk and the French Quarter Market.
