The Ogontz Choral Workshop offers extraordinary opportunities for singers, church musicians, and choral conductors to explore repertoire with some of the world’s leading choral directors. Registration is open to anyone; no auditions are required. Past participants have come from across North America  and beyond and have included singers and musicians of all backgrounds.

Unlike many summer choral workshops, which focus on a culminating public performance, the Ogontz Choral Workshop is an opportunity to become immersed in several masterpieces without the pressure of preparing to perform.
