Series 1, Webinar 2 - 27 Mar 2020: "Togetherness" Is Not a Course Objective

‘Togetherness’ Is Not a Course Objective”

Developing choral culture online, not just choral courses

“‘Togetherness’ Is Not a Course Objective” focuses on aspects of choral culture beyond our traditional educational goals. Nevertheless, it is these same elements of the whole experience, that make choral singing such a positive influence for tens of millions of Americans. And so as we realign toward the all-virtual university, how do we account for what’s been lost in the conversion (and value what’s been gained)? To answer these question, and offer attendees some tools & materials to build their own solutions, panelists explore strategies for synchronous and asynchronous community building activities. Ultimately, both panelists and attendees can share examples from their work to restore community within our choral families.
