Peak Your Vision
Children’s and Youth Choir conductors have a special mission - to offer the highest possible standard of artistry and music education, to nurture their students into well-rounded, caring adults and to continually build the foundation of the choral art in the United States. A team of conductors and the National Children’s and Community Youth Choir R & S Committee have come together to offer the community of children’s/youth conductors an opportunity to share and develop artistically, educationally and administratively. The weekend will offer a variety of sessions including several round tables to learn from each other. Presenters include Karen Bruno, Paul Caldwell, Margie Camp, Jena Dickey, Emily Ellsworth, Christy Elsner, Cathy Fink, Janet Galván, Joan Gregoryk, Teresa Guillén, Camilla Horne,Karen Lutgen, Marcy Marx, Deborah Mello, Nick Page, Marcia Patton, Josh Pedde, Catherine Sailer, Elena Sharkova, and Tim Sharp and will include performances by Young Voices of Colorado, Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale and the Colorado Children’s Chorale.
The retreat planning team consists of Robyn Lana, Angela Broeker, Jena Dickey, and Emily Ellsworth. The retreat is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Martin Luther King Day Weekend, 2012. The event will take place at the Sheraton Downtown Denver.
Join colleagues, friends, and new friends in Denver for a welcoming, non-competitive weekend of learning, networking, problem solving, mentoring, and sharing of artistry in the second ACDA Children’s Choir Conductor’s Retreat.
