Choral Directors Institute 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Choral Directors Institute has been moved to an online format.

All classes and credit offering will be available to participants and all institute materials accessible through an online platform. The online institute will run Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 19. Clinic sessions (with a variety of presenters) and reading sessions (with full scores to view online) will be offered, and our trends projects will be presented as in the past.

The course instruction will be asynchronous; participants will be able to view the clinic session videos and reading sessions scores on their own schedule throughout the week. After viewing a clinic session video or reading session materials, participants will submit a reflective document to earn course credit. 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).

Participants have the option of registering for the institute ($160) for zero credits, or can chose to enroll in any or all of our classes (at $40 per credit). We are asking participants to register by the June 1 early-bird deadline. This will enable us to gauge interest in the institute this year (and in this format) and make a final decision on our ability to provide this event to directors. Following June 1 the institute fee increases to $185.00.

We are making every effort to provide our participants a wonderful opportunity for professional development and growth. We hope you will join us!

Guest Clinician for 2020 will be Kevin Fenton
