Ennegram Numbers and Conducting

with Dr. Clifton Davis

Tuesday, June 30 at 3:00pm (EDT)

The Enneagram of Personality is an understanding of nine interconnected personality types made popular by Ichazo, Naranjo, and Stabile (among many others). These types can help us understand why such vastly different conducting styles can equally help shape beautiful choral tone. Come explore ways the roles and fears of each type can either enable or limit the communication between conductor and choir.

Check back soon for a full video of this session. Conference recordings may take up to 7-10 days to fully process and publish.
