Event description
Together Twilight Sessions is a programme of workshops and conversations with internationally renowned vocal artists and musical experts.

About this Event

Inviting audiences to delve into a wide range of vocal and musical styles, the Together Twilight Sessions workshops and conversations are designed for anyone curious to know more about the multi-faceted aspects of music, with a particular focus on singing and the voice. No prior musical experience is needed – just an enthusiasm to learn and participate.

In this conversation with The Choral Commons founders André de Quadros and Emilie Amrein, we will discuss how their work seeks to build a more equitable and innovative future for choral music.

The Choral Commons aims to provide a space for choirs and conductors to envision innovative and equity-centered practice and to confront racism, poverty, ableism, LGBTQ discrimination, displacement, and much more. They produce podcasts, interactive webinars, and curate resources on divergent pedagogy and practice. The Choral Commons connect and engage community in meaningful dialogue, and incubate creative, artistic, and compassionate choral projects that empower choral music organizations to work for a just and peaceful world.

Join us for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion.
