A Call for Choirs: Join Your Voice to the 2014 ArtPrize Awards

For the first time, the ArtPrize Awards will be held at Grand Rapids’ Civic Theatre, an historic space in the middle of the ArtPrize District. While tickets for the live event are scarce, the pre-party, big-screen broadcast, and after party at Rosa Parks Circle are open to everyone. A city-wide street party brought to you by WOOD TV8—including food trucks, Founders beer, and live music—will complement the thrilling announcement of the winners of ArtPrize 2014.

The ArtPrize Processional

To add to the festivities, Dennis Rybicki, Diocesan Director of Liturgical Music at Cathedral Square, has composed an original song of celebration. Sheet music for the tune can be downloaded here, and you can listen to the tune, performed by a choir under Rybicki's direction, in the video below.  

How To Participate

If you are a member or director of a choir, ArtPrize invites you to participate in the merriment on Friday, October 10. All choirs are welcome. Please send your name, contact information, and the size of your choir to music@artprize.org to find out how you can join your voices in celebration with ours.
