Central concept of the Symposium:
"The impact of religions on American choral music". We hope that this
theme will stimulate the presentation of inclusive papers on a wide variety of academic and artistic points of view. The papers will be able to address choral issues within the framework of the different religions, over time, in different countries and cultures
of the Americas, and we trust that they will enable us to enrich our perspectives and future choral practices.
