The ensembles will be directed by guest conductor Dr. James Jordan, senior conductor at Westminster Choir College of Rider University, and Karen Kenaston-French, APSU associate professor of music and director of choral activities.

This festival features the Austin Peay choral ensembles and two of the highest rated high school choirs in Tennessee. Both high school choirs have made superior ratings at the state choral festival with students who consistently qualify for All-State Choir.

Each of the choirs will perform individually and will also combine for three numbers. This concert is the culmination of a two-day workshop and residency by the guest clinician, Dr. James Jordan.
