Chorus Festival or Choral Festival
Dearest Teachers ,
I am quite confused of the appropriate term to be used regarding the singing activities held in school which was in group/per class . Which is the right term: Chorus Festival or Choral festival? Pls do enlighten me . Thank you.

It really depends on personal preference as they both are concerts/festivals for groups of singers.

I like ´Choral Festival ´ because a ´chorus ´ can also be many more things besides being a group of singers.
´choral ´, however, generally only means something that is sung or performed by a chorus or choir.

I ´m teaching music this year & have recommended we call our singing festival a ´choral festival ´ because of this distinction.

It is usually called a Choral festival.
You sing in a choir but have choral concerts.
A chorus is also part of a piece of music, often the B-part that comes
again and again.
