Annual Conference

The Conference is the centerpiece of Chorus America's professional development and training opportunities for chorus leaders. Highlights include plenary and breakout sessions with nationally renowned speakers and practitioners, events celebrating the choral community and featuring leading choruses, and opportunities to network and connect with your colleagues.

Thank you for an amazing 2021 Summer Conference!

The choral field is adapting and innovating in incredible ways—and our Conference has evolved to serve the changing needs of choral leaders. We gathered online in February and June to learn, connect with each other, and celebrate what makes the choral community so special.
