The UWF Summer Festival Chorus is open to singers of all musical levels from the greater area of Pensacola, ages 18* and up. UWF SFC is a week-long music immersion experience that occurs twice each summer. The group has performed such works as the Haydn Lord Nelson Mass, Fauré Requiem, Bernstein Chichester Psalms, and numerous smaller works.

Participants in Summer 2019 will prepare two concerts. Session One explores various works by John Rutter & Mack Wilberg, two of the most prolific composers of our time. Session Two is titled Choral Masterpieces and will feature individual movements from landmark works of the choral repertoire (Brahms, Beethoven, Thompson, Orff, etc.). Emphasis will be made on proper choral tone, technique, musicality, and delivery. Each week will culminate in a Saturday evening concert offered free to the public.

**While previous choral experience is preferred, the course is open to students of all musical levels. Ages 18 and up permitted. Students aged 17 will be permitted, but must provide a letter of recommendation from their choral director (church or school).
