B. Sing! College Conducting Master Class and Lab Choir

A lab choir composed of an ensemble of St. Charles Singers and the participating college students offers you a place to practice conducting, and to get professional and peer feedback. Sign up early if you hope to take a turn conducting the choir under the tutelage of Jeff Hunt.
