Advice sought on any US choral workshops, etc. in May 2014
Date: January 5, 2014
We are in the process of planning a vist to the USA in May of this year. My wife has a college reunion in southern California early that month, and I'm planning to join her in the second half of the month, taking in a visit to our daughter, who lives in San Francisco. I was just wondering whether there might be any choral events - conferences, workshops, etc. happening about that time, either in California or within striking distance. I realise that most of the ACDA events take place in February or March, so I may be out of luck, but I was wondering if there might be any more local events taking place. I'm an associate member of ACDA, as well as belonging to the British equivalent, the ABCD. My interest is particularly in composing for choirs, and I've tended to specialise in recent years in writing Christmas music for choir and orchestra. I also conduct a chamber choir here.
If there were any informal events taking place, I'd be more than happy to lead a workshop and share some of my music, although I'd be equally pleased to hear from other composers about their work. I also sing in a large symphony chorus in Birmingham, UK, so would be interested to know if any good choral festivals or events were taking place around that time. It's possible that I might remain in the US fo the first week or so of June. It would be good to meet up with some other choral composers to share experinces!
