A choral “Community” refers to all beings who have a shared love or interest in choral music. Often, as choral professionals, we become so focused on our own ensembles and our own musical involvement we forget the tremendous influence music has on others. The Eastern Division Conference, Creating a Choral Community, will open all our eyes, ears, and hearts to the varied impact music has on society in the hope of creating bridges and roads to the many disparate members of our community.
