The 2022 Ole Miss Choral Festival will be a return to our pre-pandemic format inviting middle school and high school choirs to participate in-person. Our festival will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2022 in the Ford Center for the Performing Arts on the Ole Miss campus. Choirs are invited to fill out and submit the registration form by September 9. The cost is $250 per choir.

Choirs perform two selections that will be adjudicated by three outstanding choral directors – Rosephanye Powell, William Powell and Jeffrey Murdock. You can read the judge’s bios here.  We are so pleased to have these wonderful choral leaders joining us. This festival is a competition and choirs are scored by the judges which creates the rating (superior, excellent, etc.). In addition, there will be “best in class” and “grand champion” awards presented. Festival details will be sent to directors once the registration has been received.

Registration for the 2022 Ole Miss Choral Festival will open on August 1.

Payment for participation must be in the form of a check – made out to the “University of Mississippi” and received by October 1.   The mailing address is:
