Show choirs, lend me your ears (and voices)! If you’re ready to wow the crowds with vocal virtuosity, we have some great ideas for you. Here are 5 amazing venues for show choirs – each guaranteed to hit your high notes!

Southern Star Music Festival

Southern Star Music Festival in Atlanta is open to groups of 20 or more in elementary, middle, junior high and high schools. Your show choir will perform at the beautiful, 600 seat Riverside Epicenter Auditorium. You’ll also get a recording of the group, quality adjudication and two-day admission to Six Flags Over Georgia.

The event wraps up with an awards ceremony at Axis Arena within the park.  It’s an amazing, energizing venue for show choirs and a great time for students!


OrlandoFest is a premier, education-based music experience in Orlando, FL. Performers of all ages can participate in either Music Festivals or Workshops.  These sessions are designed to reinforce concepts being taught in the classroom or studio.

In addition to state-of-the-art facilities, each program includes admission to Universal Orlando Resort™.  It’s a great way to reward the efforts of your dedicated students!

Show Choir Nationals

While it may be a little late to register for this year, you can begin planning for 2022! Show Choir Nationals is a competition for elite show choir groups in Nashville, TN. The Gaylord Opryland Hotel hosts talented students during 3 days of competitions. Students will also perform on the iconic Grand Ole Opry House stage.

Show choir directors love this event as much as students!  Each group has someone dedicated to helping them with the experience and access to equipment storage. Staging, lighting, sound systems are in top working order and performance locations are chosen to optimize productions. Judges are impartial, experienced and helpful.

Show Choir Nationals is an outstanding performance opportunity in a city whose legacy IS music!
