The Harbor Choral Festival of Music exists to provide individuals and families a world class choral experience within an intensely concentrated five day vacation holiday environment. The Festival regularly welcomes singers from thousands of miles away to enjoy the West Michigan community. 

Its goal is to provide a tight time sensitive forum for the busy family and involve those adults and their children with musicians in a professional musical setting and to demonstrate to all participants the joy and thrill of singing, which can be had continuously throughout life, regardless of age. 

Over the years, the Festival has collaborated with various educators and West Michigan schools, venues and performing arts organizations including, Grand Rapids Ballet, Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys, and dancers from Turning Pointe School of Dance. Its instrumental support has been drawn from local Michigan symphonies, college professionals and students looking to enjoy a career in music. 

The Festival was formed in 2003 to promote the conducting and choral music of England’s Jonathan Willcocks and enjoyed Mr. Willcocks as its Artistic Director for 10 years. The Festival is presently in capacity-building mode.
