Five Themes

Explore the future of collective singing

The main theme of Leading Voices 2022 concerns the future of collective singing from a social and artistic point of view. The event offers sessions for all the different roles you can have as a conductor, vocal leader or students in these fields.

The main theme is further divided into 5 subthemes, which relate to the different roles of a conductor, vocal leader, music educator, manager, creator, composer or student in these fields :

  1. Develop your artistic skills
  2. Discover your inner leader
  3. Learn new management tricks
  4. Unleash your potential as a teacher
  5. Connect your work to society

The sessions do not always connect exclusively to any single role of a teacher, artistic leader, conductor or manager, so we invite you to choose from our programme based on the contents of each session and how they may be helpful to you in your role or interest.

Sessions within each theme are further divided into different formats and sub-formats like workshops, lectures, LABs, round tables, lounges and more. A LAB, for example, is a unique format that gives room to co-creation and experiment. More about the five formats.

Because session leaders are sometimes invited to talk on a variety of topics, or to tailor their topic to different audiences in separate sessions, we recommend not just scrolling through the list of session leaders but to take a look at the sessions they will be leading.

Most of the session leaders are programmed twice, so that you will always have an opportunity to work with them or learn from them.

Use a filter to explore the programme

To make it easier to find the sessions that are most relevant to you, you can filter the programme and the list of session leaders by theme or (sub)format. The programme can additionally be filtered by target group or interest, so that everyone can quickly find the sessions tailored specifically to them.
