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. 

After ten continuous years, The Festival did not have a 2013 season. The Festival has used the 2013 year for capacity-building.

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, located in West Michigan, USA, is pleased to announce its dates for 2014 are July 28 - August 1, 2014. 

The August 1, 2014 concert venue is the 650-seat Royce Auditorium at the St. Cecilia Music Center, considered one of the most acoustically superb recital halls in the country. For more information, please e-mail haan@harborchoral.com.
