Debra Lynn - Bel Canto & Barbershop; The Magic of You!-There are consistent struggles we face as singers, things like: breath control, pressing for high notes, collapsing for low ones, inconsistent resonance and ring, vibrato and a myriad of other bothersome sound anomalies. In Bel Canto, these issues are fundamentally associated with irregular air pressure going across our vocal folds. Learn how easy it can be to stabilize your beautiful singing voice, without even thinking about your air. In this interactive and experiential class, Debra Lynn will visually and kinesthetically guide you through the inner Magic of You!

Vicki Petzko - Beyond Unity: From Congeniality to Collegiality

If your chorus is one of those that has worked hard to unify, to develop friendships, show compassion, develop trust, strive for inclusion and share vision, that is wonderful. Thats good news. The bad news, however, is that youre not done yet.  A chorus must be congenial for success, member retention, and common goal setting.  In comparison, it takes a collegial chorus to come to agreement on difficult issues, to truly collaborate, to take risks and deepen trust, and to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good.  Are you ready to stop voting and come to consensus, to resolve important issues with deep discussions, and set standards beyond what has been done before?  This session will review concepts behind unity and further explore the journey from congeniality to collegiality.

Fran Furtner - Pump Up Your Membership.  As we start to see light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, now is a terrific time to focus on membership growth for your chorus.  This class focuses on the two parallel paths to membership success -- attracting new members and maximizing the satisfaction and retention of current members.  Whether your chorus has flourished or floundered over the past two years, you'll learn helpful strategies and ideas to kick-start your planning and initiatives for membership growth.

Betty Lou Coleman - The Magic Of Energy

Got the Covid slumps?  Beyond Energy Class will give you a few simple ways  to help give you fuel to get your energy pumping so you will be back on the road to exciting performances!   Don't miss the opportunity to refuel and learn how to make that excitement and energy happen...on purpose!  ...and at today's fuel cost, better go for it!

Jean Barford - Why Do I Stand Here?

Learn the how’s and why’s of where you stand on the risers. A demo chorus will be used for this class.
