Musical Arts Day

October 26, 2018

Each year, the best vocal and instrumental high school musicians from around the country audition for the opportunity to work with Concordia's music department students and faculty in clinics and rehearsals during the university's Musical Arts Day. Singers and instrumentalists receive a full day of high energy, focused rehearsing and acclaimed performances. Participants work closely with Concordia music faculty and students throughout a entire day that culminates with a concert featuring performances by the high school honor choir and band, selected soloists, and members of Concordia's University A Cappella Choir and University Symphonic Band.
