Singers rehearsed and performed with guest conductors, including nationally renowned vocal music composer Emily Crocker, who directed the Youth Choir.
Wisconsin is the only state where this opportunity is offered, with festivals also being held in Eau Claire, Milwaukee, and Appleton with a total of approximately 2,000 students singing the same concert across the state in one day.
Students were selected according to their vocal and general music teacher, Lisa Smetana, who based selection on their interest in singing. Students were able to attend because she is a member of the Wisconsin Choral Director's Association, who sponsored the event.
