FESTIVAL INFO

We are thrilled to announce the 2nd annual M-PACT VOCAL FESTIVAL.  The festival will be held November 19-20, 2020, and will be hosted by our friends at the Kansas City Kansas Community College Music Dept.  This year's festival will be presented in a VIRTUAL format.  There will be online master classes, virtual clinics, video performances, and a variety of other presentations and educational opportunities.  Although we are disappointed to not be returning to KC this year, we are VERY excited that our 2020 festival will be FREE and open to anyone anywhere in the world!  We are in the process of finalizing the schedule, content, and format of the festival, and we look forward to sharing more details with you soon.  In the meantime...

 VOCAL ENSEMBLE VIDEO PERFORMANCES

We are now accepting registration and video submissions from vocal groups ANYWHERE in the world.  All types of ensembles, large and small, are invited to submit pre-recorded live performance videos, or "virtual choir"-style videos.  Selected groups will have their video played during the festival, and members of m-pact will provide constructive feedback on the performance.  Video requirements are:

  • Format = MP4 format
  • Resolution = 1920x1080 
  • Maximum length = 10 minutes
  • Minimum length = NONE!  Even if your ensemble has only one song prepared, you may still submit.

 The deadline for video submissions is November 1, 2020.  However, please note:  groups will be selected on an first-come, first-served basis.  To submit your ensemble for consideration, please follow these steps:


 1.  COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION FORM BELOW


2. CLICK BELOW TO UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO

You may register your ensemble now, and submit your video at a later date.  However, if your video is not received by the November 1 deadline, your festival slot may be offered to another group.
