Madrigal Festival

Vermont ACDA presented its annual Madrigal Festival on Friday, December 13, 2019. More than 300 students from all across Vermont* rehearsed throughout the day and presented a concert that evening that featured selections from each of the high school ensembles, and combined works under the direction of guest conductor Amanda Hanzlik (CT-ACDA President) (see bio below).  The all-festival chorus will sang a program of their own to cap off the night, including the premiere of a commissioned piece by VT composer, James Stewart. “RESTORATION CHORUS” can be viewed HERE.

This year we were thrilled to return to the Cathedral of Saint Joseph located at 20 Allen Street in Burlington, VT!

Next year’s festival will be held on Friday, 12/11/2020 at 6:30pm under the direction of Kristin Cimonetti (Mill River Union High School).
