We’re always evolving to meet the needs of our community of colleagues. Each year, the ICC Teacher Symposium designs new sessions and hosts special guest speakers!  Every Symposium is different – join us this year for our 5th Anniversary!

New this year:  Comfort Level Tracks

Split sessions will provide a choice based on level of experience and comfort level with the session topic.  Ex: Vocal Pedagogy for experienced singers, as well as an introduction to vocal technique for those teachers less experienced in the choral world!

The Symposium welcomes all music teachers and directors – from all backgrounds!

The 2020 Symposium will cover these topics and more:

– Maintaining Personal Motivation in Our Field
– Social Emotional Learning
– Kodaly Methodology
– Beginning Teacher Concerns & Support
– Movement in the Choral Classroom
– Conducting Technique
– Vocal Pedagogy
– Elementary Games Teachers Love Too
– Conducting & Movement Connections
– Technology
– Advocacy
– And more!

 Can’t make it in June, or can’t get enough of your friends at the ICC?  New this year – Observe our July Choral Fest summer camp! While Symposium sessions are not offered in July, when you register as an official observer you will have the opportunity to meet with ICC Artistic Staff to discuss your observations and get your questions answered!

 July Choral Fest summer camp dates are July 20-24 (Friday is concert day and will not be an official observation/meeting day.  Participants can still observe Friday in addition to their other day(s) by contacting Lauren Southard.)

Cost: $10 per day (Lunch and snacks included)
