CORO begins a summer season of choral music in Des Moines, IA

Join Simpson College and CORO for an exciting season of choral music and education during the summer of 2018! Choral scholars can earn their Master of Music in Choral Conducting in three consecutive summer terms at Simpson College.

CORO hosts both a Composer’s and Conductor’s Institute. Both Institutes provide an enriching and encouraging atmosphere for participants to advance their skills while receiving supportive guidance of their craft from nationally-recognized faculty in both masterclass and individual settings.

The season includes a choral festival with multiple concerts given.
