The high school choirs will attend a clinic at Tennessee Tech University with Dr. Eric Nelson, Director of Choral Studies at Emory University during the day. Then, the choirs will join forces, over 300 voices strong, for a 7 p.m. concert in Wattenbarger Auditorium in the Bryan Fine Arts Building under Dr. Nelson's direction.

"The concert features a performance by each visiting choir, a performance by the Tech Chorale, and will end with a finale of two pieces performed by the festival choir of high school and college students combined. I strongly urge people to come and watch this unique experience," said Craig Zamer, director of choral activities at TTU.

This is the third year the Festival of Voices has been presented at Tennessee Tech. It is free and open to the public.
