  • Choral Leadership Workshop (October 2020)

    Dates:

    Location:

    Fairchild Theatre, MSU Auditorium, East Lansing, MI, 48824

    Description:

    Choral faculty members from the MSU College of Music will conduct the workshop, which will provide high-quality, positive experiences in sight-reading, vocalism, and musicianship to gifted high school singers and choral conductors, which they can take back to strengthen their own choral ensembles. Additionally, they try to present new and diverse repertoire that will be of interest to choral conductors. 

    The COVID19 pandemic has challenged all of us in ways that we never imagined. While we are keenly aware of the gravity of the current situation, we also believe we need to continue to look to the future. When we finally emerge from this uncertain and chaotic time, choral music will be sorely needed by our society: real human beings joining powerful poetry to inspiring and comforting melodies and harmonies. We are grateful that we all can be a part of that effort.

    Registration Instructions
    At this time, all we ask is whether or not you and your choir are able to join us (with the understanding that the future is uncertain). We are not asking for payment of the participation fee ($85 per quartet; $170 for two quartets) and we understand that your plans could change.
