Choral Music Experience: Music: Power and Influence
Led by Janet Galván, professor, Ithaca College with guest composer Jim Papoulis
This workshop will help participants learn how to plan engaging programs and conduct rehearsals which empower and inspire during the process. A resident youth choir will be the choir for the conducting masterclass.
Dr. Janet Galván has been a guest conductor and clinician throughout the United States, in the United Kingdom, Canada, Belgium, Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece, and Brazil as well as national and regional choral and music education conferences and the World Symposium on Choral Music. She was on the conducting faculty for the Carnegie Hall Choral Institute, the Transient Glory Symposium in February of 2012.
New York City-based Jim Papoulis composes, orchestrates, and conducts music for dance, film, ensembles, and choirs. His compositions are known for exploring new modes of musical communication by honoring and connecting classical and traditional forms with non-Western sounds. Jim's distinct and ever-evolving approach unites classical with contemporary sounds, world rhythms, R&B, and voices, while combining live instruments with current composing and recording technology.
