Summer Choral Conducting Symposium

Description

The Summer Choral Conducting Symposium is devoted to the enhancement of beautiful and communicative choral singing. To that end, we will discuss conducting and rehearsal techniques appropriate for a wide range of choral ensembles. Students will conduct in masterclass settings and will be video taped to aid in the evaluation of their work. Daily reading sessions of new repertoire will take place. Evening choral rehearsals, in which members of the workshop will be joined by student and community singers, will provide practical opportunities for workshop participants. Sessions dealing with score study, the male, female and youth singing voices, and Dalcroze techniques will also be presented.

Workshops may be taken for graduate credit (NCFD), or for personal enrichment without college credit.

Please see our website for current dates or call (734) 936-2660.
