Our consultants can work with your choir for a special rehearsal, a half-day or full-day workshop, or an overnight choir retreat. An outside clinician is an excellent way to prepare a choir for a special festival service, improve vocal technique, and nurture musicianship. Clinics are especially motivating for children’s choirs.
Here is an example of an overnight retreat, led last year by Cantor Magness:
