HATTIESBURG, MISS: William Carey University hosts annual Music Performance Assessment
William Carey University will host the annual Music Performance Assessment on Tuesday, April 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Thomas Fine Arts Center on the Hattiesburg campus.
The festival, presented by the Winters School of Music, will feature performances by 18 choirs, seven vocal ensembles, three guitar ensembles and 30 vocal soloists. The public is invited to attend and admission is free.
The event began more than 17 years ago under the direction of former WCU music education instructor Wanda Saul. Formerly known as the Private School/Home School Music Festival, the event provided an opportunity for non-public schools to be adjudicated according to standards for vocal music performance.
“The festival is now open to public schools, especially sixth grade choirs, which are not permitted to be adjudicated in the district and state choral assessment, hence the addition of many and varied ensembles participating today,” said event coordinator Dr. Mark Malone.
