Student leadership in the choral classroom provides the opportunity for emerging leaders to set the pace musically, organizationally, and inspirationally within their choir community. Recognizing the potential of young people early offers them time to consider the type of leadership style that fits with their values and beliefs. Consciously considering the leadership styles that they are experiencing in their daily lives creates an awareness of effective leadership and its impact.


High school directors may send up to ten students. Please complete the registration form and submit payment by credit card or check by June 1, 2022.

Cost is $50 per student and will include conference materials and lunch.
