Beats on the Street

Published: Monday, June 10, 2019

Thanks to a grant from the Bowling Green Community Foundation, this new youth competition for small vocal ensembles is another great way the Black Swamp Arts Festival is supporting the arts. 

Vocal ensembles compete in in a musical competition to earn money for their high schools' music departments. Unaccompanied vocal ensembles of three to ten members are encouraged to apply starting in January. Each team has five minutes to set up and perform their chosen piece.


Application deadline is Saturday, September 5, 2020.
