Description: The University of South Dakota's Choral Directors Institute is an intensive program designed to expose music educators to the best in current and standard literature in addition to teaching methods and materials. We are excited to once again offer the institute in person on the USD campus in Vermillion from Wednesday, June 15 to Friday, June 17, 2022.
The three-day institute will include large ensemble reading sessions, master classes and clinic sessions that focus on a wide variety of teaching subjects for choral directors and will feature guest clinician, Jacob Narverud, and a variety of USD faculty. The Trends class will require a project agreed upon by the participant and the instructor (i.e. creating a database for their music library, programming music for their upcoming school-year or other projects for their classroom).
We are making every effort to provide our participants a wonderful opportunity for professional development and growth. We hope you will join us!
