Conductor C. Thomas Brooks speaks to an audience on the importance of demonstrating the next level of musicianship to students. As a Festival Conductor and Clinician, Brooks has experience in getting high school singers to achieve higher quality music making.

Kristen Galardi, Music Educator at Spofford Pond Elementary School in Boxford, speaks about her experience with Lyricora:

“Working with Lyricora was an absolutely wonderful experience for my students. Daniel Schmunk and the ensemble presented a high quality workshop for my chorus, and made the event fun and exciting! Their knowledge and love of music was infectious and the students became instantly intrigued. They had a blast gaining an indepth education in singing techniques. 

Our evening performance with Lyricora surpassed my expectations. My students were able to hear complete 4-part harmony in the music and were awed by Lyricora’s talent. Parents were extremely impressed with the entire event and very pleased that their children could gain this experience from a professional vocal ensemble. Parents and school administration alike are still sending their compliments and pleasure regarding Lyricora!"
