The Dream Chorus Experience
COMPETE on barbershop's biggest stage in a unique, high-quality, one-time-only virtual chorus!
The Real Contest. Real Scores. Real Champ Directors. Your moment has come!
This has never been done before! Two new choruses, OPEN TO ALL SINGERS, drawn from all over the world, will compete as full contestants in the 2024 International Chorus Contest in Cleveland.
More than a showcase, more intense than a Festival, these will be actual competing choruses, which will be scored and ranked on the Official Scoring Summary, alongside all other qualifying choruses in the final results.
And YOU can be one of the singers.
Sing like champs, for the champs!
The Dream Choruses will be led by directors who know their way around the International Contest stage:
- Greg Clancy, multi-gold director of The Vocal Majority
- Justin Miller, multi-gold director of The Westminster Chorus
Experience the magic of these dynamic, passionate, world-class musicians. Challenge your own abilities to rise to a new standard of musicianship, performance intensity, and achievement. Earn the applause of an International Chorus Contest audience for the first time.
All voices are welcome!
