Remote Learning and Beyond…Resources for the Choral and Music Classrooms
In a world where we have been living in a Covid-compliant routine for a full year, how can we examine and refresh our practices as we continue teaching virtually and phase back into the in person experience? In this workshop, we will explore the ever-evolving virtual world of teaching and its transition back into the classroom, and discuss the practices we want to hold onto in a post-Covid world.

Since joining YPC in 2007, Sophia has conducted YPC choristers at a number of NYC’s most notable venues, from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to the 92nd Street Y, Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Center, and Symphony Space. She has prepared and conducted YPC choruses for national and international radio and television appearances, recording sessions, collaborative performances with such artists as the New York Pops, Meredith Monk, the Kronos Quartet and the Stephen Petronio Company, and for performances not only in New York City, but also in major venues throughout North America, Asia, Europe, and South America.
