2021 WBDI Virtual Summer Conference

Season of Renewal

Registration is open: July 8-9 | Virtual

After a year that none of us will forget, we hope you will come and recharge your spirit at our annual Women Band Directors International Virtual Summer Conference on July 8 and 9, 2021. A Season of Renewal will be an opportunity to rediscover the joy of music making, for building and strengthening connections as a community, and to evoke the creative essence inside each of us through improvisation, self-care, poetry and more. Our conference will provide you with tools for reconnection to music, to your colleagues, students and - most importantly -  to yourself. We hope you will spend two days with us recharging, reflecting and renewing. A Season of Renewal begins with WBDI in July  join us!
