Today we hosted day one of our third annual Music Educator Retreat, a conducting symposium for music educators. In attendance were college students aspiring to be educators, music teachers of all levels, and even retired teachers! Educators engaged in insightful conversations about music, music education, and the essence of their craft! Eric M. Laprade, conductor of the Festival Wind Ensemble at our concurring Summer Music Festival, gave a presentation on expressive movement for educators. Pictured to the right is Malcolm W. Rowell, Jr., who was a featured speaker at the event! Another of today’s highlights was a conducting feedback and critique session. Stay tuned for day two!
