Together, we will discover, compare, and share successful recruiting strategies used by men’s choirs of all types, including proven methods for secondary school singers, university glee clubs, all-male a cappella ensembles, and barbershop choruses.

Conducting Men’s Choirs: Strategies for Success
This session will be of interest to conductors of middle school, high school, collegiate, and adult men’s choirs. The session will feature a panel of conductor-authors who have contributed their thoughts to the newly published book: Brothers, Sing On! Conducting the Tenor-Bass Choir (Hal Leonard Corporation). Discussion will focus on: strategies for building tone, categorization of the adolescent male voice, sight-singing resources, recruiting, repertoire selection, and building community within your men’s choir. Attendees will be given time to ask questions of the panel.
