Podium 2016

Igniting ideas. Sharing voices.

19-22 May 2016 | Edmonton, AB

The Podium 2016 Conference & Festival Committee invites the submission of applications for choral performance and proposals for the presentation of interest sessions and lecture recitals.

The Podium Festival includes 15 concerts that showcase the diversity of choral music in Canada and beyond.  Within the festival are 3 concert series – the World Music series, the Made In Alberta series, and Podium Late Night which will feature contemporary choral music including vocal jazz and a cappella pop.  The Podium Festival will also feature many concerts outside of these series, and choirs of all ages performing choral music in any genre are encouraged to apply.

In addition to being featured in a Podium Festival concert, invited choirs may perform in one or more school concerts, in pop-up performances in and around the City of Edmonton, and in sharing concerts with other choirs attending Podium.  Invited choirs will receive discounted tickets or festival passes.

The deadline to apply for choral performance at Podium is 15 May 2015.

Interest sessions and lecture recital proposals are invited on a range of topics including conducting technique, choral/vocal music education, choral repertoire, performance, composition, arts administration, and use of technology. Sessions exploring innovation and/or best practice are highly encouraged.

The deadline to submit proposals for interest sessions and lecture recitals is 15 May 2015.

The Call For Interest Sessions and Application for Choral Performance include detailed information about the submission of proposals and the application process.
