Annual Iowa Lakes Show & Jazz Choir Festival January 24-25

Mon 1-23-2017 Estherville,IA

(Estherville)-On Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Wednesday, Jan. 25, twenty-five Show Choirs and Jazz Choirs from area high schools and middle schools will be coming to Iowa Lakes Community College for the Annual Iowa Lakes Show/Jazz Choir Festival.

The choirs will be performing for two clinicians – Clay Blackman from Omaha is returning again this year to work with the show choirs, and Cornelius Koerselman, Northwestern College, will be working with the jazz choirs. The clinicians will then give the groups on-stage feedback to help them prepare for all of the performances that high school show and jazz choirs have throughout the spring.

The public is free to come anytime during the day to watch the groups perform. There is no cost to attend. Show choirs will be performing in the gymnasium and Tuesday’s jazz choir performances will be held in the auditorium on the Estherville campus of Iowa Lakes Community College.
