Music Celebrations Presents
National Presidents Day Choral Festival
Washington, D.C.
February 1 – 4, 2013

A Musical Remembrance
of the
Life and Service
John F. Kennedy
1917 - 1963

Featuring Artistic Director Dr. Gary R. Schwartzhoff

John F. Kennedy Music Celebrations International is pleased to present the third-annual National Presidents Day Choral Festival, a major national event in Washington, D.C. originally designed to salute "America's Greatest Presidents." The festival will be a musical remembrance of the life and service of John F. Kennedy, and will feature a combined force of mixed voices singing en masse in the Concert Hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts – a fitting setting for this important remembrance. Dr. Gary R. Schwartzhoff, Director of Choral Activities at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, will serve as the festival’s Artistic Director.

Presidents Day (or Presidents’ Day) is the colloquial name for the American holiday designated as George Washington's Birthday. As the first federal holiday to honor an American citizen, the holiday was celebrated on Washington's actual birthday in 1796 (the last full year of his presidency) on February 22.

While the holiday is still officially known as Washington's Birthday, it has become popularly known as "Presidents Day," honoring both Washington and Abraham Lincoln, as well as all the other men who have served as president..
