Join ACS, our Guest Clinician, and Expert Presenters as we learn together: - Zebulon Highben will serve as our Guest Clinician, leading rehearsals with singers as we learn a challenging new work together. Dr. Highben serves as Director of Chapel Music at Duke University, and brings a wealth of experience as a choral conductor, educator, and composer. - Presenters will share research and practical tools in sessions on music theory and reading music; maintaining vocal health; and exploring underrepresented and emerging composers. - Social opportunities and a special optional yoga session will help us connect and have fun together!
