What is a Virtual Choir Festival?
How Does it Work?

Teachers have been entrusted with the enormous task of continuing to educate and engage students through both virtual and in-person classes, creating additional layers of time and stress. CODA Concerts has worked tirelessly to create an alternative to in-person performances to preserve a safe environment for both students and their teachers.

What is a virtual choir festival?

Proper social distancing is paramount to maintaining the safety of our students throughout this pandemic. Our virtual choir festivals utilize the latest technology to create a professionally edited video of performances by individual choirs and festival choruses with guidance from their own directors and our exceptional faculty of composers and clinicians. Additionally, students and teachers will have access to our faculty through interactive Zoom sessions.

How does it work?

Once you register with CODA Concerts, we will provide specific instructions for individual singers to use part learning recordings and guide tracks, find an appropriate recording space, record their individual part, and upload their completed video(s). Once the individual videos from all participants are received, they will be mixed, mastered, synced, and edited together into an ensemble performance. The final video will include individual choirs, festival choruses, solo singers from private coaching sessions, and the screen appearance of each participating singer and director.

Festival Electives

Every festival will include a professional collaborative pianist and appearances by our composers-in-residence and guest conductors. While all choirs must participate in the Individual Choir Performance, the decision of which of the remaining electives to choose from is up to you:

  • Individual Choir Performance
  • Performance of New Piece Written for CODA
  • Performance of Piece Chosen by Guest Conductor
  • Private One-Hour Zoom Clinic
  • Lecture Discussion with Composer-in-Residence
  • Private Vocal Coaching
