Penn State School of Music
In High Voice Festival
Saturday, February 1, 2020
The Penn State Oriana Singers
Jayne Glocke, director
The Penn State In High Voice Festival is intended to motivate treble singers to sing through high school and beyond.
The festival is open to students who sing in the treble register in grades 9-12, and will limited to 125 participants. Complete choirs, select groups, or individuals are welcome. Participants will experience the exhilaration of rehearsing and performing with the Penn State Oriana Singers in a combined choir.
Held in the new Recital Hall on the University Park campus, the morning session will consist of a rehearsal to learn two pieces. After lunch, we will rehearse three more pieces with the Penn State Oriana Singers, and the day will conclude with an informal concert performance. If bringing an intact treble choir, it may also perform on the final concert.
Music should be purchased by the schools and, if possible, be prepared in advance of the festival.

Conducted by Jayne Glocke, Oriana Singers is a treble choir composed of seventy singers representing a wide variety of majors at University Park. Repertoire includes music written for treble voices from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century: madrigals, motets, part-songs, folk songs, musical theatre, and music by female composers. The choir has performed by audition at conferences of the American Choral Directors Association and the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association. In addition to its two campus concerts per year, the choir also regularly appears on the School of Music's annual Mosaic concert.
