AFPC/NCEA Webinar - Cultivating a Musical Connection in Young Singers

Students begin forming their creative identities and associating themselves with specific activities well before adolescence. How can we make artistic activities appealing and inclusive for students of various backgrounds during these formative years? How do we retain their involvement through middle and high school and beyond? Who is missing from our programs, why, and how do we bring them to the fold?

This session will focus on ideas regarding recruitment, retention, repertoire, and rapport as they relate to cultivating a diverse and inclusive environment in the musical ensembles of our Catholic schools

Presenter, André-Louis Heywood is Artistic Director of the St. John's Boys' Choir and Liturgical Music Director at St. John's Preparatory School
