High School Choral Workshop

Several choral workshops for area high school students have been held at LC with Dr. Jong Kim, professor of music and director of graduate studies in music, conducting.

The workshops provide students with musical tools to prepare them to become leaders in their choirs and include proper breathing techniques, tone placement, whole-body singing, stylistic awareness, and fundamentals of sight singing.

Workshop participants also have the opportunity to perform in a concluding concert with members of the LC Concert Choir.
