Green Lake Choral Institute

Thursday, July 18 – Sunday, July 21, 2019


The Choral Institute opened the very first Green Lake Festival of Music in 1979 under the visionary leadership of Douglas Morris. He established the program’s distinguished reputation and then passed the baton to Sir David Willcocks whose personality, passion for music, and love of people left their deep and abiding mark on the Green Lake Festival. Now under the direction of Maestro Stephen Alltop, people look forward all year to the four days of singing, fellowship, recreation, and high-level performance with professional orchestra — all in the beauty and tranquility of the Green Lake, Wisconsin area. Singers participate in daily choir rehearsals, choral conducting workshops, and optional one-on-one vocal coaching with guest artists. As always, there is time for reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.


The Green Lake Choral Institute celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Festival with joyful music from many periods and styles, including brilliant works for chorus and orchestra. Bach’s Cantata No. 29, Gabrieli’s Jubilate Deo, Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, and Handel’s “The King shall rejoice” will raise our spirits to glorious heights.  Music from Venezuela, Georgia, Kenya, and America, including Mack Wilberg’s hoedown piece Cindy, will add varied stylistic elements to this wonderful experience.
