The unique Master of Music in Choral Conducting (MMCC) Program will allow you to refine your conducting and rehearsal technique, musicianship, and vocal pedagogy with hands-on attention from prestigious and experienced faculty. Each summer residency is seven weeks long and includes a one-week choral festival of lectures, master classes and performances with prominent guest artists. This program allows you to transfer up to three regular-session classes (9 semester units) from an accredited university of your choice. The MMCC Program is accredited through the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
