About the Webinar

In addition to our roles as performers, educators, and musicians, conductors also take on the role of leader and all that this mantle entails. In these challenging times, our singers and students look to us not just for musical guidance, but for inspiration, reassurance, and clarity as well. How can we best wear these multiple hats while also charting a course for those we lead amid our own uncertainty and questioning? How do we help to inspire at a time when the need for many is extreme and even dire? This panel will explore these questions and more, drawing on the expertise of some of our profession’s most stalwart leaders and administrators.
