Hosts

What do Hosts do?

Hosts rehearse and film "grabs" to help choirs and the Festival family know what's happening during the year. Hosts present 2 concerts in September at the Festival Theatre. They are on stage for a lot of the show, leading and entertaining the audiences they introduce items and guest artists. Hosts work with a co-host and an adult mentor. They learn stagecraft and hone their speaking skills, building the confidence to feel comfortable hosting shows in front of a large audience.

Meet our Hosts!
Hosts will be visible to the audience for the whole concert. Presenting in a manner that supports the feel and look of the performance.
  • Students do not need to be choir members to be Hosts.
  • Students do not need to be from a school which has a choir.
  • If Hosts are choir members, they will sing in the choir with their school and Host on another night.
  • Students who are in Troupe or Orchestra cannot be Hosts.
