The following is submitted on behalf of Yvonne Rogalski, Chair of the Whalen Academic Symposium Steering Committee:

Congratulations to all the students and faculty sponsors who participated in the Symposium!

Congratulations to all of the winners on a job well done!

Queer and transgender folks all too often find spaces focused on singing lacking relevance to our lives, awareness of our needs, and commitment to collective liberation. It is a powerful act for LGBTQ people and our straight and cisgender allies to find the power in our voices, listen deeply to each other as singers and raise our voices together in song.
