About America's Top Choirs

America’s Top Choirs™ is a competition hosted by FeelitLIVE, which showcases the vast array of choral talent from across the United States.

America’s Top Choirs™ was created to shine a spotlight on the high school choirs that make great music for our country every day. These choirs have the privilege of being judged by a jury of five distinguished choral experts, who handpick finalists and pick the grand prize winner with the audience's help.

Stay tuned for upcoming seasons of ATC in September 2022!
