Spotlight Choir Initiative

The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir believes that the arts play an integral role in cultivating a well-rounded education. Through our Spotlight Choir initiative, we invite local high school choirs to perform side by side with our 150-voice volunteer choir at our annual Festival of Carols, one of the season’s most popular concert series.

This partnership provides an experience for a young person to hone their musicianship, study skills, communication, problem-solving, time management, and more through side by side rehearsals, professional instruction, and performance hall presentations.

If your high school or middle school choir is interested in being considered to participate in Festival of Carols, please email

The 2023-2024 Spotlight Choir is Ben Davis High School Purple Aires, Jericho Hughes & Sarah Miller, Conductors.
