Conduct with Charisma: a workshop for choral directors
Charisma can be a problematic subject for conductors. We are told that it is an essential element for musical leadership, but we are also told it is a magical quality that nobody can control. People with all the musical skills and personal commitment to direct choirs find themselves doubting their legitimacy because of the mystery surrounding this elusive yet fundamental ingredient.
This workshop lifts the veil of mystery to allow choral directors to explore the inner workings of charisma. Through presentations, group discussions and practical exercises, it offers the opportunity to understand what is going on when charisma is present, and thus how to make it happen at will.
By the end of the day you will have a set of practical strategies of immediate benefit to your choir, and a framework of understanding to inform longer-term analysis and planning.
