2018 Jubilation Festival Now Accepting Entries!
WCLV's Jubilation! Elizabeth Stuart Church Choir Festival was established in 2008 to showcase sacred choral music that is recognized as part of the core classical repertoire; to encourage a heightened standard of choral music in houses of worship; and to celebrate choirs that joyfully strive for excellence.
No longer a competition, the 11th anniversary edition of the Festival, is open to any choir - paid or unpaid - from any house of worship in Northeast Ohio. Jubilation will take place Thursday, May 10 at 8:00pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and will be broadcast live on WCLV 104.9 ideastream® and streamed on Facebook Live. The three non-competing choirs selected to participate (each presenting a 20-minute concert featuring at least one piece of music from the core classical repertoire) will each receive $1,000 and a commemorative plaque.
Interested choirs are invited to complete an entry form and submit mp3 files of two recent performance by the ensemble. Alternate form of submission: Mail entry form and CD of two recent performances to Jubilation!, WCLV, Idea Center, 1375 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44115. Deadline for entry is April 5, 2018.
Jubilation! encourages choirs to perform at their highest level and provides wide media exposure and support for those selected to participate. What's not to like?
