Commonwealth D
Breakout Session

This session will equip you with the tools you need to make your chorus or choral classroom a welcoming and inclusive space for young singers of any gender or sexual orientation. Together, we’ll explore ways to empower LGBTQ+ youth through music, basic terminology and physiology for transgender singers, pedagogy for transitioning voices, appropriate section/voice placement, gender inclusive language, concert attire, touring, and how to be an ally. Conductors and teachers will leave with new knowledge about how to best support their young LGBTQ+ singers.
