WIU Choirs


The Choral Leadership Workshop for High School Students
Friday, October 11, 2013
COFAC Recital Hall

The Choral Leadership Workshop is an exciting and motivating opportunity for any student in choral music.  Our guest clinician is Dr. Elizabeth Schauer from the University of Arizona. Participants will have numerous opportunities to interact with clinicians and engage in our most popular offering, a special rehearsal and conducting session with the Western Illinois University Singers.  Directors wishing to augment their workshop experience can bring their entire choir for a clinic session in the afternoon.  This was a very popular offering last year.  Space for this opportunity is limited to 3 choirs so please let us know at your earliest convenience.

To register, simply send an email to jc-stegall@wiu.edu with the following information:

1.  Director's name and  cell phone,
2.  School name,
3.  Names and grade-level of each participating student, and
4.  Indicate if you are bringing your entire choir and want a special clinic.

Please bring the $5.00 per student registration fee to the check-in table on the day of the workshop.  Registration deadline is Tuesday, October 8.

Direct any questions to Dr. James Stegall, jc-stegall@wiu.edu.
