2012 Festival Details & Registration

2012 Oregon Children’s Choral Festival!

The Oregon Children's Choral Festival was established in 1982 to provide an annual venue for school and community children's choirs to perform high quality choral music in the state of Oregon. The OCCF provides an opportunity for young singers aged 8-13 to meet and perform with other singers their own age in Oregon.

Each year hundreds, sometimes thousands, of young singers come for all over Oregon to attend this loved festival. Young singers get to perform for and received feedback from adjudicators and clinicians, some are chosen to perform for the whole festival and all choirs get to join in the mass pieces and experience the excitement and thrill of being in a world class performance hall!

Directors often tell us that the Festival is the highlight of their singers’ year because of all the fun, experience and music it brings to their education and lives.
If you’ve not yet been to the OCCF, you and your kids are in for a real treat. If you are a regular attendee, you already know what a great event it is… we’ll see you soon!
