Titan Talks: "Resilience, Relevance + Reinvention: Choral Music in the COVID Age"

Scott Ferguson, Illinois Wesleyan University


The Illinois Wesleyan University Collegiate Choir has established a long history of excellence through its on-campus performances, annual tours, and recordings. It is noted for its "exquisite discipline, enthusiastic singing, and total responsiveness." Each year during Homecoming, a highlight for the Titan community is the Collegiate Choir Alumni Choir’s participation in the Sunday chapel service. In this webinar, Dr. Ferguson discusses the challenges in choral music due to COVID-19, and how he has worked to instill a sense of resilience in current students amidst challenges of rehearsing and performing.
