We invite choral directors each year to nominate outstanding high school junior and senior vocalists to attend the Dorian Vocal Festival. Approximately 1100 students will be accepted into the Festival Choir. One hundred of those students will also be selected to form a Chamber Choir, which rehearses a day before the Festival Choir.
Following Saturday/Sunday rehearsals for the Chamber Choir and Sunday/Monday rehearsals for the Festival Choir, the Festival concludes on Monday evening with a Grand Concert, featuring the Festival Choir, the Chamber Choir, five high school soloists, and a performance by the Luther College Nordic Choir.
Nominations for the 2020 Dorian Vocal Festival nominations will open in mid-September and close in late-October.
