America's Center

The convention center "America's Center" is located in the heart of downtown St. Louis. The building complex was opened in 1977 as the "Cervantes Convention Center" and has held major events over the years.

The center features 502,000 contiguous feet of exhibition space in six halls, 80 meeting rooms, the 1,400-seat Ferrara Theater, the St. Louis Executive Conference Center for private meetings of up to 100 people, and the Edward Jones Dome. America’s Center will be the main event center of the American International Choral Festival.

Ferrara Theater

With 1,400 seats, the Ferrara Theater at America's Center offers an intimate and comfortable space for concerts in the heart of downtown St. Louis.

It is named after the late John Ferrara who was chairman of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.

The Ferrara Theater will be the main competition venue for the American International Choral Festival.

Christ Church Cathedral

Located in downtown St. Louis, the Christ Church Cathedral complex includes the 500-seat Cathedral itself, the Bofinger Chapel and the Bishop Tuttle Memorial (BTM) building.

Designed by Leopold Eidlitz (New York), the Cathedral is an example for the Early English Gothic of the 14th century. The Cathedral is well-known for its stained glass windows and Aeolian-Skinner organ, but its crowning glory is its altar retable.

The Christ Church Cathedral will be the venue for the sacred music competitions during the American International Choral Festival.
