The growing national conversation about transgender students in the music classroom is the subject of a new conference at Earlham College this winter.
Sponsored by Earlham’s Music Department, the Center for Social Justice and the CoLab, the Transgender Singing Voice Conference will bring together students, educators and allies for training sessions and panel discussions led by singers, composers and leaders of transgender choruses. The conference runs from Jan. 20-22 in the Center for Visual and Performing Arts.
“This is the first conference of its kind,” says Assistant Director of Choral Activities Danielle Steele. “The conference will focus on etiquette, vocabulary, de-gendering the choral classroom, anti-bullying initiatives, legal protections and inclusive programming in a music setting.”
Part-time and full-time students in high school and college can attend the conference for free. So can Earlham faculty, staff and students. The fee for all other attendees is $100 per person, but one-day passes are available for people interested in specific sessions.
