TFS Showcase (Past)

Members of the Festival Singers are extremely talented, as you will see and hear at our annual season-closer of songs from the stage, screen and the field of pop. In keeping with tradition, several in the group will take the spotlight as they “show off” their skills at the mic. Our crackerjack instrumentalists will add that extra spark as we present a special evening of entertainment!

This and That

The Topeka Festival Singers celebrates thirty years under the direction of Dr. Kevin Kellim. Our first concert is an offering of some of his favorite sacred and serious works, and a selection of folk songs, spirituals and shorter pieces. Dr. Kellim is especially excited to have several young area singers join us on stage as we continue our annual high school apprentice program. These combined voices never disappoint!

Old Chesnuts, New Fire

Get into the holiday spirit with a program of warm favorites requested by our patrons and members of the ensemble. We present the music of Forrest, Luboff, Whitacre and Wilberg, just to name a few. Of course, there must be an audience sing-along! Add sparkling works and arrangements that were recently published, and you’ll be sure to unwrap new favorites at this seasonal concert.

On a Lighter Note

The Singers’ 33rd season closer is their annual nod to music from the screen and stage, and who knows what else might be thrown in? Anything goes with this group of talented musicians. As you’ve come to expect, several in the group will be called to the “spotlight” to show off their skills as soloists. And, with the backing of our merry band of players, this evening at the “pops” is one you’ll be sure to remember.
