We are so excited to announce Jan Harrington as the clinician and conductor for our Choral Conducting Master Class! Dr. Harrington was Professor and Chair of the Choral Conducting Department at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music for 33 years until he retirement in 2007. During that time, he conducted the select Indiana University Singers and the IU Contemporary Vocal Ensemble as well as various orchestral concerts, operas and oratorios.

This 5-day professional choral conducting master class will accept a limited number of conductors along with conducting auditors and singers who wish to work with this eminent conductor. The master class concludes with a public concert in Miller Chapel at the Princeton Theological Seminary, which took many of our patrons by surprise last season with its power and beauty.
