Friday – October 16, 2020:
Groups will rehearse for two hours in the morning and evening in an off-site location with guest artists Sean and Leah Ivory. Each brings a wealth of talent and experience that both directors and students will embrace. As part of the experience, Sean and Leah will work with the entire group to write and create a new composition for Saturday’s performance. It promises to be fun, energetic and inspiring for all!
And after the workshop, enjoy an evening dinner show at Dolly Parton’s Stampede or the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show.
Saturday – October 17, 2020:
Time to shine! Each participating ensemble will gather on a Dollywood stage just as the crowds arrive for the day and perform 2-3 individual short selections. The combined choir will then perform four selections together, including the newly commissioned piece. West African drummers will add a spirited accompaniment to the show for a fiery finish!
After the performance, enjoy the rest of your day at Dollywood.
