Dilworth Choral Festival
In March of 2017, Crescendo was grateful to have Martha Shaw as our guest director for the Dilworth Choral Festival. She is the founding director of the Spivey Hall Children's Choir & Tour Program in Atlanta. Under her direction, the Choir often sings on NPR and has been a featured performance at many state, regional, and national conventions, including conferences of the American Choral Directors Association, Georgia Music Educators Association, the Orff-Schulwerk Association, and Chorus America. The Choir has performed all over the country and the world, including tours in Sweden, Austria, Scotland, China, Canada, England, and Spain. Dr. Shaw has also received numerous invitations as a clinician and guest conductor throughout the United States, Canada, and Korea.

Crescendo Community Chorus began hosting the Dilworth Choral Festival in the spring of 2014. The festival is named for its original conductor and benefactor, Rollo Dilworth, who generously offered to help support the event in future years.
