Since its inception in 2013, over 100 participants from across North America have attended the HCCI for an intensive week of choral conducting study. With an equal focus on gesture, pedagogy, and musicianship, the HCCI addresses the real-life work of the choral conductor, and in an environment that values both inclusivity and excellence.
