There are three things the Smoky Mountains are known for: great food, great fun, and great music. As a performer, musician, or choir member there is no better place to go and experience worship through music than the Smoky Mountain Spring Choral Event. At this event choirs from all over the country will join together to receive training from some of today’s most established and renowned vocal artists and performers. Choirs will have the opportunity to perform together and showcase their abilities as well as grow together through vocal part sessions and industry guided training in choral performance, vocal performance, and worship. This event will give your choir an opportunity to join together and team build as a group as well as be encouraged individually and by fellow choir members from around the country. Trained experts from the music industry will share their expertise and your choir members will learn new songs and strategies that will enable your choir to lead your church in a more meaningful worship experience when you return home. To top off an amazing time of training and fellowship, the event would not be complete without a concert led by these industry greats and accompanied by the attending choirs. Your choir does not want to miss the Smoky Mountain Spring Choral Event; it is sure to become a yearly tradition for your choir members.
