Lakeside’s Chautauqua Choral Festival provides singers an opportunity to study, sing and perform in a choral ensemble, culminating in a final concert at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 24 in Hoover Auditorium.

The festival, titled “This Land We Love,” includes choral repertoire comprised of great spirituals, hymns and patriotic music, focusing on the themes and stories of faith and freedom. The performance will include renditions of "God Bless America," "Zions Walls," "God of Our Fathers" and more.

Participating in the festival are members of the Chautauqua Choir, as well as singers and choirs from the Lakeside community and around the Midwest. The Chautauqua Choral Festival is the perfect musical retreat for choral singers of all ages and levels of experience.

The festival also offers an extended option for singers to participate in vocal master classes, focusing on singing and vocal technique development, church choir repertoire, enhancing church choir programs, effective methods for working with instrumentalists, and developing a successful praise team for church music programs during special sessions on Friday, June 22.

This event is under the artistic direction of Michael Shirtz, who also serves as Lakeside Chautauqua’s Coordinator of Worship Music. A performing artist, composer and conductor, Shirtz is known for his choral festival programs, storytelling skills and engaging productions.

Festival clinicians include renowned tenor Dr. C. Andrew Blosser from Ohio State University and renowned choral director and clinician Amy Johnston Blosser.
