Spotlight Choirs

Program description

The Arts are a vital part of a balanced, complete education. The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir invites to the stage local high school choirs for participation in Festival of Carols, one of the season’s most popular concert series, as part of the Spotlight Choir initiative.

Throughout the state of Indiana, high school choral music programs continue to grow and benefit from collaborative efforts such as the community Spotlight Choir series – what an experience for a young person to hone their skills: musicianship, study skills, communication, problem solving, time management and more.
