In our latest installment of the Vocal Action series, the Choral Society and the QRC presents a discussion with various choral conductors and ensemble leaders about anti-racist practice in ensemble work, from the inter-personal, to the selection and preparation of repertoire, and beyond. Particular emphasis will be placed on the role of leaders in modeling anti-racist action/behavior in and out of rehearsal/performance, and their role in maintaining ensemble culture.

Featuring: Felicia Barber, PhD., Assistant Professor and Director of Choral Activities at Westfield State University; Emilie Amrein, DMA., Associate Professor and Director of Choral Activities at University of San Diego; and Brent Talbot, PhD., Associate Professor and Coordinator of Music Education at the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College.
