University of Toronto 2016 Choral Conducting Symposium
Master class has only THREE spots remaining
Tuesday - Friday, July 5 – 8, 2016
The University of Toronto’s annual choral symposium features Dr. Rollo Dilworth, clinician, with U of T faculty members, Dr. Hilary Apfelstadt (master class clinician), Dr. Lori-Ann Dolloff (community singing and intermediate conducting), and soprano Elizabeth McDonald (vocal pedagogy and individual voice instruction). Come and join us in a friendly, supportive environment where community, church and school choral leaders make music together. You will leave inspired!
Special guests, members of Viva! Youth Choir (Carol Ratzlaff, conductor), will work with Dr. Dilworth as he demonstrates rehearsal strategies for adolescent singers. Other topics include choral repertoire and resources, choral pedagogy and conducting, and vocal technique. Symposium participants will rehearse varied repertoire with Dr. Dilworth in the daily Directors’ Chorus.
Registration deadlines: Conductors wishing to be part of the master classes with Dr. Apfelstadt should apply immediately, as only THREE spaces remain. Please email a letter of intent, with an outline of your background, to firstname.lastname@example.org All other participants (who will also receive conducting instruction from Dr. Dolloff in a class setting) need to register by June 1.
On-campus housing is available at Massey College: www.masseycollege.ca (look under "summer rentals".)
U.S. residents will find the Canadian dollar a great bargain this summer! Toronto is a wonderful city with many amenities and easily accessible by air, rail or car.
