The Wisconsin Choral Directors Association sponsors the “Singing In Wisconsin” festival to enable choral students across the state to participate in a quality music experience and to provide encouragement and support for choral music educators who are members of WCDA. This year, the four Singing In Wisconsin sites were located in Chippewa Falls, Kaukauna, Waukesha, and Wisconsin Rapids. A total of sixteen choirs were represented at sites throughout the state, singing the same repertoire on the same day for this event, involving over 1200 choral students!
