LCS Choir Fest

Choir Fest 2024

Each spring LCS holds a choir festival for private Christian schools. All students have an opportunity to perform, improve their vocal ability, and sing with new friends. All attending schools have an opportunity to perform several songs individually and participate in a mass choir. Each choir fest is led by an educated, experienced conductor. The goal of LCS choir fest is to provide glory to God through music teaching and music performance. See this year’s list of songs and practice material below.
