"The country's leading choral training institute"

The 2002 Festival was a tremendous success!! Thank you to all participants!

In August, 1998 a major new choral festival was inaugurated: The Dennis Keene Choral Festival. Based at Kent School in Kent, Connecticut, and now in its fifth season, the Festival has become an internationally acclaimed choral training institute for ensemble singers and conductors.

The festival provides a unique opportunity for committed avocational choral singers to study, rehearse, and perform side-by-side with professional singers, and for both established conductors and serious students to learn from master conductors, all in pursuit of the highest levels of the choral art.

For 2002, the Festival will culminate in a complete, world-class performance of Mendelssohn's Elijah at the famed Caramoor Summer Music Festival in Katonah, New York.
