USC Choral Leadership Workshop

Location: California, USA
Date: Saturday, October 22, 2011
Time: 9am to 4pm
Location: University of Southern California
The USC Choral Leadership Workshop is a non-competitive, choral
singing workshop opportunity for high school singers and their
directors. The workshop is focused on developing young leaders in the
choral field. High school choir directors are invited to send two SATB
quartets that represent the best leaders in thier choral programs. At
the workshop, participants will work in a live rehearsal setting with
Dr. Jo-Michael Scheibe on selected choral repertoire focusing on
leadership in ensemble building, tone production, vocal technique and
musicianship. Singers will be offered the opportunity to refine their
skills as ensemble leaders during mini-clinics that will concentrate
on score marking, sight singing and vocal health. One of the
highlights of the workshop will be featured performances by the
Thornton School’s two most distinguished choral ensembles: the USC
Concert Choir, conducted by Dr. Cristian Grases and the USC Chamber
Singers, conducted by Dr. Jo-Michael Scheibe.
*Festival Chorus: Choristers will participate in a festival choir of
over two hundred other high school singers selected from around the
Los Angeles area. USC Director of Choral Studies Jo-Michael Scheibe

leadership clinic focusing on topics in choral leadership.
*Director and Chaperone Lunch: Directors, chaperones and accompanists
