What People Say About “Sing A Mile High”

“What an amazing performance last night!!! We were in awe of how 300 kids could sound so professional after 2.5 days of practicing!!”

Susie Franke, choir parent

“I think this concert was one of the finest I’ve ever heard.  The differences and similarities in the choirs were pleasant to observe.  I think the audience could see that there is a lot of work, variance, and possibility in this sphere. The massed choir pieces were phenomenal.  And no one could have intentionally mixed the apparel for a better effect – they looked sensational, all 300 in their various blacks, whites, blues, reds, muted print, and shimmer. Congratulations to you and the whole crew.”  

Gretchen Timmer, collaborative pianist

“What an amazing performance last night!  All your hard work was so apparent in the beauty of the kids.”

Cindy Yallop, choir parent

When choosing tours for our choir, we first consider the musical experience.  Who will be the director?  What opportunities will our singers have to learn from other choirs?  Is the festival organized in such a way to encourage building a community with all the singers?  Sing A Mile High does all this and more!  I especially appreciate the organization that takes place before the visiting choirs arrive so every minute at the festival can be experienced to the fullest!

Sheri McKelfresh, Artistic Director

Northwest Girlchoir has thoroughly enjoyed Sing a Mile High every time we’ve participated. The festival is consistently well-organized, has superior conductors / clinicians and is always so much fun!

SAMH has been a highlight for many of our singers! It’s provides them a wonderful opportunity to sing with quality children’s choirs from around the country.  It’s also very well organized-we have loved the experience!
