Emilie Amrein Helps Launch "The Choral Commons", Community Focused on Equity in Choral Practices

In June, Emilie Amrein (USD's Director of Choral Activities) helped to launch The Choral Commons, a community where choral music practitioners and organizations can gather in order to envision equity-centered choral futures. With their community and creative partners, they hope to empower choral practitioners with additional strategies for innovation, grounded in culturally responsive, critical and equity-centered values. 
 
The Choral Commons produces podcasts and interactive webinars and offers curated resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion; they connect and engage community in meaningful dialogue on pedagogy and practice, and incubate creative, artistic, and compassionate choral projects that empower choral music organizations to work for a just and peaceful world.
 
Support for The Choral Commons comes from the University of San Diego, the Karen and Tom Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness, and Social Action and the College of Arts and Sciences Arts Engagement Initiative. USD’s Arts Engagement Initiative supports artistic action embedded in and responsive to ever-changing social, cultural and political circumstances, deep and meaningful engagement with community, and increased access to the arts on the USD campus and beyond.
