Here, participants will learn the nitty gritty of making the transition from a collegiate group to a professional group, as well as making the most of individual personalities and voice qualities in a small group (4-6). Topics include, but are not limited to, arranging for the small group, business skills/where to begin, and transitioning from a collegiate group to a professional group (both by an audition process and by taking your entire collegiate group and making it a professional group). The panel will include Craig Simonetti (The Hexachords), Diana Galeano (The Hexachords), Linnea Henningson (The Hexachords) Xander Teplansky (The Hexachords), Angela Longo (Musae), Sam Creighton (Musae), and Mel Daneke (Musae).
