The Singing Network has selected 55 presentations which focus on foundations of choral music and diverse aspects of collective singing. Focus areas include: singing and song, moving, storytelling, conducting, dramatizing, mediating, teaching and learning, composing, socializing, imagining, communicating, expressing… and beyond!

The EXchange! is an integral component of the World Choral Expo. All EXPO participants will have FULL ACCESS to EXchange! sessions.

EXchange! sessions will take place in the mornings and early afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (5-7 September 2022).
