Transformative Community Engagement
Choruses are increasingly programming choral music that addresses “social justice” issues. But are we connecting the music performed on stage with the very real social issues on our streets and in our communities? As we move beyond the traditional concert stage, are our collaborations built with authentic partnership and goal sharing? Are we educating our choirs and audiences to authentically experience music outside of our familiar choral genres?
Through demonstration and case studies, this workshop explores steps for creating choral partnerships that are truly collaborative, that deepen your chorus’ relationships in your community, and are transformational for your chorus as well as for your community partners.
This event is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council (msac.org)
