The mission of the WELS Choral Festival is to foster Christian fellowship among WELS high school students as they prepare, rehearse, and perform choral music, so that with one heart and voice they may glorify God.

MVL is honored to host the 2018 West Regional Choral Fest, with the theme “Grace, Mercy, and Peace.” Our guest clinicians are Jodi Rowe (MVL ’89) and Jon Ziesemer (former MVL faculty).
