Headliners Mary Goetze and Brad Holmes will share their expertise on rehearsal techniques, interpretation, tone, artistic process, world music and more. Seven full reading sessions, a wide variety of interest sessions by Arizona choral leaders, exhibits, Let’s Talk Shop breakout groups, and three hybrid interest/reading sessions also are featured. Other highlights include a performance by the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, social activities, music discounts and a free trip to the Musical Instrument Museum.
