MUN Singing-Choral Institute


Earn Graduate Credit!

Ce programme est offert en anglais seulement.
Memorial University of Newfoundland and The Singing Network are collaborating with the International Symposium on Singing and Song II (June 27-29, 2018) and PODIUM on the EDGE: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea (June 29-July 3, 2018) to offer three graduate courses as part of the 2018 MUN Singing-Choral Institute in the areas of choral conducting, vocal and choral pedagogy, and singing traditions and practices. 
 
The course runs May 7 - Aug 3 (Memorial University Spring Semester 2018) in a blended format - online components (readings, postings) via D2L except for on-site participation in the Symposium and Podium 2018 (June 27 - July 3). There may be a final seminar and/or individual meetings set for July 4th. 
 
As a MUN Singing-Choral Institute participant, you will register for one of the three 2018 SPRING Semester courses described below. These three courses (cross-listed with Faculty of Education and the School of Music) will be offered in a blended format including online components via D2L (e.g., readings, postings, discussions) as well as on-site/campus participation throughout the International Symposium on Singing and Song II and PODIUM on the EDGE: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea.
 
Throughout these two events, you will have opportunities to attend and engage in keynote and delegate presentations, workshops, lecture-recitals, master classes, rehearsals, panel presentations, workshops, roundtable dialogues, concerts, and social and networking events...and earn graduate credit at the same time!  Join us to work with and be mentored by the world’s finest vocal/choral scholars, researchers, performing artists, conductors, composers, and pedagogues working in diverse areas related to singing and song.
