Women's Leadership Workshop

alt text

The Women’s Choral Leadership Workshop is designed to empower female singers (primarily sophomores and juniors) to be leaders in their choirs. The number of participants from each school is limited to a balanced octet (SSSSAAAA) or quartet (SSAA) of section leaders or future section leaders. The goal of the WCLW is to equip and motivate young ladies to grow as musicians, develop as singers, and blossom as choral artists.
