All New England Choral Festival

Greetings Choral Music Educators!                                

[On-line registration:  REGISTER!]

Please join me and my students at Plymouth State University for the 40th annual All New England Choral Festival.


  • Theme: The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace
  • NEW!  This year, you may bring as few or as many singers as you like in grades 9-12.  We will be using the new All Well North building which will allow us to have a unique experience performing Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace with full orchestra in the round!
    • You will purchase your own music and may choose to learn the entire work or the 5 movements included in his choral selections version, both published by Boosey & Hawkes:
      • Complete vocal score: UPC: 073999266085     Publisher ID: 48012252
      • Suite in 5 movements:  UPC: 073999984637     Publisher ID: 48012172
    • There are used scores available on Amazon and you also might try borrowing scores, but I hope most of you will learn the full work.
    • Registrations are due by September 22nd.
    • Registration fees are due by October 2nd.
    • Music, rehearsal instructions, and digital rehearsal file information will be emailed immediately upon registration.
    • Registration fee of $25 per participant includes dinner.  Lunch is not included and I encourage you to bring bag lunches.
