MOUNT OLIVE- The University of Mount Olive (UMO) will host a workshop in the series entitled, “Successful Music Leadership in Today’s Church” on Saturday, September 8, from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM.


Led by Glen McCune, this workshop will focus on ways to strengthen small church choirs by exploring skills and techniques as they occur in a real choir rehearsal using actual singers.  Topics will include choosing anthems, effective conducting techniques, and singing with a powerful tone. There will be time for questions and some discussion.
