On Tuesday we concluded the first episode of the Encast, which focused on Diane Linn and the story of the Community Chorus of Detroit. In the final segment, Diane discussed how international performance tours can help ensemble set goals, build excitement, and inspire a sense of purpose in their members.
Today, we want to focus on one of the most critical responsibilities for any music director: selecting repertoire. We pride ourselves on being more than just a performance tour company; we want to be actively engaged with our travelers and share the lessons we have learned through years of working side-by-side with some of the country’s most accomplished music directors.
In these bonus episodes, we speak with two prominent choral directors, Dr. Sean Boulware and Suzanne Woodruff, to discuss the importance of building repertoire, and how it can impact your local community.

Classrooms and performance halls across the US have been disrupted, and musicians have been forced to transition into online environments. It may not be possible to travel or perform with your ensemble now, but with our new Encore Live series, you can still stay connected.
