The Annual Conference is the centerpiece of Chorus America's professional development and training opportunities for chorus leaders. Each year in June the Conference is presented in a different city, in partnership with a host chorus, and brings together more than 400 choral conductors, administrators, singers, board members, and business members.

Headliners include high-quality plenary and breakout sessions with nationally renowned speakers and practitioners, concerts featuring leading choruses from the area, and festive networking events. Go here for the schedule:

There will be a special session on choral consortiums, involving representatives from GBCC, the New York Choral Consortium, the Seattle Choral Consortium, and more. Please plan on coming to this session to contribute your thoughts, questions and ideas on how we come together to further the choral art. Friday June 19, 1-2.15pm.
