About the festival

Women enrolled in Nebraska high school choral programs are invited to participate in the Nebraska Women’s Choral Festival to take place on Monday, April 11th on the UNL City Campus. This year our “FAB” FESTIVAL is featuring music For, About, and By women, and will celebrate the continuing tradition of the power and beauty of women’s voices raised in song.  Individual choirs may also perform on the final evening concert at 7 p.m. in the Kimball Recital Hall.  The Festival will also continue the tradition of singing several combined choral selections.  Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like your women’s chorus or chamber ensemble to perform individually on this concert.  See our website ( for a detailed schedule of the day as well as repertoire and additional information for this festival. 

The repertoire for this year’s women’s festival chorus will include:

  1. Ave Maria, Brahms (CPDL)
  2. Be Like the Bird, Abbie Betinis (5 part canon, Abbie Betinis Music Company, 10297875)
