The Chorus Ecosytem Forum will, for the first time, examine the connections between the different types of choral music activity in the U.S. This spring, a cohort representing various sectors of the choral field will gather at Yale University to consider the relationships between choral artists of all kinds, our organizations, our work, and our supporters.
This Forum will be held April 8-9, 2016 at the Yale School of Music, as part of Chorus America’s and Yale’s celebration of the Robert Shaw centenary. With our partners the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) and the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), we will bring together a group of leaders representing various types of choral music activity and various roles within choral music practice—conductors, singers, administrators, board members, and teachers.
The primary goals are to 1) identify common opportunities and challenges facing choral music sectors, and 2) develop recommendations for future actions, collaborations, and projects that will help sustain and promote the benefits of choral singing in communities.
Chorus America is proud to convene this event with the support of our lead sponsor the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).
