- Meredith Neumann
September 17, 2016
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Our 2016-2017 opening choral workshop will feature Meredith Neumann, who will share how she gets her singers to respond to and engage with music through expressive movement and cohesive programming. Attendees will learn how to encourage singers not just to be musicians, but to be artists. Together we will look into the challenge of programming quality repertoire that speaks to children AND audiences of the 21st century. We will also learn how to bring the music to life through focused and meaningful movement that enhances the experience for all. This choral workshop is a fabulous way to kick off the start of the school year as teachers begin to prep their repertoire for up coming concerts. Choral packets will be included!
