“Comprehensive Musicianship through Performance”
The Carroll University Choral Program is committed to providing a variety of experiences to its students, to the music teachers of Wisconsin, prospective students, and to any lover of the art of choral teaching.
Join us on October 8th from 9 am to 5 pm for our 2nd Annual Choral Music Conference led by CMP specialists Paul Gregg.
This conference is free of cost to all its participants.
Meet the Director of Choirs and Vocal Music at Carroll University
Dr. Letícia Grützmann is in her second year as the Director of Choirs and Vocal Music at Carroll University. The Carroll Music Program is focused on undergraduate studies, and the Choral Music Education Majors are given extensive podium time, having the opportunity to conduct the major ensembles in concerts on a regular basis. A native from Brazil, Dr. Grützmann is passionate about intercultural interactions, and this is well reflected in her repertoire choices and concept concerts.
