As graduation days approach, we know what’s really on everyone’s minds: summer vacation. And while days at the beach or camping in the woods might be the first thing you picture, Pepper® has a few other ideas you might want to consider. We host, sponsor, or coordinate hundreds of events across the country every year for musicians and music directors of any type of ensemble or style of music. Search our redesigned Events Page and you will almost definitely find an event for you.
Here’s a look at some of our most popular events coming up this summer:
If you are a vocal, classroom, or worship music director, chances are either you have been to a Joy of Singing/Joy of Worship workshop or you know someone who has. These workshops have been running for 30 years, and Pepper is happy to present them once again this July in three different locations. If you have yet to experience the Joy of Singing, you really should consider it! Attendees get first looks at new music from favorite composers in the choral, classroom, and worship music worlds from the composers themselves. Many sessions also include choreography workshops for musicals and more. Check the page for each session to see who is featured.
June 10th and 11th, Pepper is hosting a two-day celebration of music and worship. Created especially for church choir musicians, Voices in Praise is a time of fellowship featuring music resources, continuing education opportunities, and interaction with nationally known clinicians. The event will be conducted by three of the biggest names in worship music: Joseph Martin, Heather Sorenson, and Craig Courtney.
There are several of these events occurring across the country. New Sounds events can feature new music reading sessions for a variety of genres – school choral, elementary classroom music, often church choral, and sometimes concert band or jazz band. Sacred Sounds events are geared toward church music, primarily for choir and sometimes including organ, piano, and handbell music. Sessions are led by nationally recognized clinicians like Andy Beck, Greg Gilpin, Joseph Martin, Larry Shackley, and more. Check the Events Page to see who is featured in each session.
Of course, those are just a few of our most popular events. There are hundreds every year in locations across the country, so there’s something for everyone. Check out our Events Page to find the right event for you!
