FAQs

If I can only attend one day, what is the cost?

We have made this conference to be very affordable for the the vast array of excellent instruction that will be received. The cost is the same for the full conference registration whether or not you take advantage of one or two days of training. The only other options are the choir and orchestra retreats that do not have access to the vast array of break out sessions offered either day.
