Women's Choral Leadership Workshop
Friday, February 16, 2024
The Women’s Choral Leadership Workshop is designed to empower female singers (primarily sophomores and juniors) to be leaders in their choirs. The number of participants from each school is limited to a balanced octet (SSSSAAAA) or quartet (SSAA) of section leaders or future section leaders. The goal of the WCLW is to equip and motivate young ladies to grow as musicians, develop as singers, and blossom as choral artists.
Registration is open now for the 2024 workshop. The registration deadline is 5pm on Friday, January 19, 2024. All student and director information must be entered by this date. See the registration page for more details.Registration
