Midwestern Region Conference

  • The Midwest Region Conference will feature headline performances by the professional vocal ensemble Kaleidoscope, a showcase of varied ensembles from Nebraska, and a performance of John Rutter’s Gloria on the 50th anniversary of its 1974 world premiere in Omaha.
  • Additionally, the conference highlights:
    • 15 of the top choirs from across the region
    • 25 engaging interest and reading sessions
    • 4 honor choirs
  • In addition, this conference will host the R3 Choirs, a reference to the conference theme: Reflect, Rejuvenate, Rejoice. These choirs will engage you, the conference goer, in performance! Three of our region’s finest conductors—Aimee Beckmann-Collier, Ann Howard Jones, and Tom Trenney—will lead the entire conference in rehearsals culminating in a gala performance: a chance for all of us to engage with, rather than simply listen to, great choral music with master conductors during the conference. 
    • Aimee Beckmann-Collier’s R3 Choir will perform choral gems of the modern era
    • Ann Howard Jones’s R3 Choir will present masterwork choruses
    • Tom Trenney’s R3 Choir will focus on sacred choral repertoire.
