About ChoralFest

ChoralFest is a non-competitive festival held annually by the Manitoba Choral Association that provides choirs and conductors an opportunity to work with acclaimed adjudicators and expert clinicians from across the continent. The festival invites all levels and styles of choral singing, including vocal jazz, with approximately 165 choirs and 9000 individuals participating each year.

ChoralFest is open to all choirs, big or small, novice or accomplished; no matter the choir’s level of experience, our adjudicators and clinicians work with each group at its own level. Participating choirs must be members of MCA. Membership renewal is September 1.

MusicFest Canada

Although ChoralFest is non-competitive, adjudicators may recommend choirs to represent Manitoba at the national festival, MusicFest Canada.
