Study. Conduct. Sing. Grow.
Immerse yourself in a week of musical mentorship in the choral art.
The Atlanta Summer Conducting Institute is a series of seminars and masterclasses geared toward music educators, graduate student conductors, church musicians, community choir conductors, and any conductor looking to grow as an artist. The Atlanta Summer Conducting Institute is proud to host Dr. Deanna Joseph and guest Dr. Daniel Bara in an institute for conductors of all experiences and levels.
“Every summer, I take the conducting staff of the Chicago Community Chorus to a summer conducting institute at various Universities. In the summer of 2018, we attended the Atlanta Summer Conducting Institute which was masterfully lead by Deanna Joseph and Daniel Bara. It was the BEST conducting institute that we have attended!”
Artistic Director/Founder, Chicago Community Chorus and Cantor, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
