Drawing choirs from colleges across the state, the Intercollegiate Choral Festival is a special opportunity for programs to join forces and sing together with an esteemed choral conductor. The all-day festival offers a chance to connect with professionals and other area students who love to sing. Ensembles will also have the opportunity to perform individual sets during the evening performance.

Conductor

Dr. Anthony Trecek-King is the President and Artistic Director of the award winning Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC). Under his direction, the chorus has earned a reputation as an ensemble of high distinction and, in 2013 received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from the White House. Trecek-King’s performances have been heralded as possessing a “surprising range of dynamics and depth of expression.” He has collaborated on performances with Keith Lockhart, John Williams, Simon Halsey, Yo Yo Ma and Roomful of Teeth and has led BCC in performances at Boston Symphony Hall, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Carnegie Hall in New York City, and Royal Albert Hall in London. He is a frequent guest conductor for All State, Festival and Honor Choirs. In addition to Trecek-King’s conducting work, he can be seen on air and online on the Emmy Nominated WGBH television series Sing That Thing, and two TEDx Boston talks. He holds a B.M. in Cello Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, an M.M. in Orchestral Conducting from the Florida State University, and a D.M.A. in Choral Conducting from the Boston University.
