Choir Alberta invites proposals for the presentation of interest sessions at Music Conference Alberta, held 25-27 October 2018 at the Sutton Place Hotel in Edmonton. A range of topics related to choral music and music education will be considered, including choral techniques, the changing voice, assessment, working with non-auditioned choirs, repertoire, and use of technology in the classroom and rehearsal.
Sessions will be 75 minutes in duration and are designed to provide quality professional development for conference delegates. Topics exploring innovation and/or best practices are particularly encouraged. Presenters will receive a complimentary delegate pass for the day of their presentation.
