Workshops

 

WORKSHOPS

Before each spring and winter concert, the executive committee organizes a day-long workshop for the choir with a well-known guest conductor to polish and refine the concert repertoire. It is an opportunity for an intensive look at the music through the vantage point of the guest conductor. Workshops are always a wonderful morning and afternoon spent together, learning as a group, sharing coffee and lunch, and enjoying singing in a different venue.
