For more than 30 years, talented singers from central and northern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan have participated in the annual Chorfest High School Honor Choir Festival, hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Superior. The purpose of this festival is to provide a rehearsal and performance experience of a major work with orchestra, under the baton of a nationally recognized choral conductor. Past conductors have included Craig Jessop, Paul Broomhead, Anton Armstrong, Karle Erickson, and Robert Ray. The concert also features performances from the choral ensembles of UW-Superior under the direction of Dr. Richard Robbins.
