Program: NJ Collegiate Choral Festival

 On Saturday, March 28, 2015, seven choirs representing six New Jersey colleges and universities met to perform for one other.  The event was conceived after a meeting in 2014 of NJ collegiate choral directors who saw the need for individual choirs to sing for each other.  The event was hosted by Patrick Gardner at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.  Dr. Jerry McCoy served as the clinician. car rent . Each choir performed for 20 minutes and then had a brief meeting with Dr. McCoy, who reinforced the many great things that occurred.  The purpose of the event was for students to share their work with each other.  The day ended with an informal gathering of all involved with refreshments and much comradery. It was a joy to hear the fine work of our singers and to observe the cheering and support clearly evidenced by the students in attendance. A commitment was made to make this a biennial event for our organization.
