Last Tuesday we released the debut episode of our new podcast series, Encast. Through this podcast, we hope to share the story behind some of the world’s most successful music ensembles, and help directors on their own personal journeys.

In this week’s episode, Sean Boulware, a highly sought after conductor, composer, and director, and Suzanne Woodruff, Director of Choral Music and Performing Arts Department Chair at Woodward Academy, discuss the importance of repertoire.

Later in the episode, we continue our conversation with Diane Linn, President and Executive Director of the Community Chorus of Detroit (CCD). She talks about building her ensemble’s repertoire, developing community partnerships, and much more.

Listen to the full episode here:

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.
