CME in Ithaca: "Music is in everyone"

My favorite thing about CME is definitely the master class. It is a great way to see how others conductors from all over the country  conduct.  Each person shows a different personality and and different strengths and weaknesses. We [the chorus] have the opportunity  to give them constructive criticism and compliments. I have realized how lucky YPC is to have Elizabeth and Sophia, conductors like them are special and rare to find.

Ithaca was an amazing event.  It being the first time that I went to CME, I learned many helpful tools to help me when I'm sight reading music. I also made friends that will last a long time. CME taught me that music is in everyone and that everyone has a voice. Now I feel good taking the skills that I learned in Ithaca and using them back home at YPC.  I will always remember this awesome trip!

Ithaca opened me up to many new styles of music, gospel music being my absolute favorite.  Raymond Wise, our guest conductor and composer is a very fun and charismatic. His style and techniques were OFF THE HOOK!
