Teacher – Greg Aune
This class will focus on three key elements which are essential components for the successful church choral conductor and the church choir. There will be a reading session of both new and “tried and true” choral
repertoire of various styles and voicings, during which specific rehearsal and musical elements of each particular score will be discussed and demon- strated. Additionally, some students will have the opportunity to conduct the class and receive feedback and coaching. We will also explore and discuss the role of the church choir as the leader in congregational song.
