Southwestern College Conducting and Teaching Workshop


Please see the message below from Dr. Brian Winnie, Southwestern College, about a Choral Conducting and Teaching Workshop opportunity this summer.  

Have a great day!



We are two months away from our 2nd Annual Summer Choral Conducting and Teaching Workshop at Southwestern College with special guest Dr. Geoffrey Boers from the University of Washington. Last summer was a wonderful experience with new and experienced conductors who were able to delve deeper into the current trends in choral education and technique. I look forward to another summer workshop with even deeper analysis into reshaping how we “do what we do” to make the choral and vocal experience even more valuable and efficient for our students.

Space is extremely limited and there is a discount for registering prior to May 15th!  You can register at:

Below is a link for more information about the workshop and workshop leaders. Attached you will find our poster with information that you can send on to your elementary or middle school colleagues if you think they may be interested!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes on the end of the year concerts,
