Millersville University’s Tell School of Music would like to invite you and a select SATB quartet or octet of your finest students to participate in annual Voices of the Future: Honors Sight-Singing Choir.” This day-long event is scheduled for Friday, October 14, 2022, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The cost is $50.00 per quartet (SATB preferred) or $15.00 per student and includes:

  • Enjoyable and educational rehearsals for students to develop their vocal technique and choral musicianship
  • Exciting repertoire to be learned throughout the day (no advanced preparation necessary)
  • Vocal masterclasses for students to receive individual instruction and coaching on prepared songs (optional). Each school may nominate one or two singers to participate in the masterclass.
  • Comprehensive workshops for teachers based on Kodály concepts to develop your students’ sight-singing skills using solfege, varied choral rehearsal techniques and a fresh approach to conducting. Teachers may bring 2-3 of their favorite pieces (“chestnuts”) to share with their colleagues to learn new repertoire that works!
  • Lunch and snacks, including a light morning snack, lunch, and light afternoon snack
  • A festive concluding concert at 4:00 pm in the Biemesderfer Concert Hall (free and open to the public) with performances by the MU Chorale, MU voice faculty, and the Honors Sight-Singing Choir.

Each school will provide their own transportation to and from Millersville University (parking permits will be distributed). The Tell School of Music invites each teacher to participate in the day as well. Please share details of this event with other high school choral conductors. To keep the Honor Choir small and selective, only the first 80 students will be accepted.

Please consider joining us for this fun, educational, and exciting opportunity, as this will be a great day of quality choral music-making and vocal instruction. As the event draws near, more specific information will be shared. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
