AUUMM 2019 Conference
July 24 - 28 • Denver, CO
Free Your Mind and the Rest Will Follow*
On July 24 - 28 The Association for UU Music Ministries (formerly the UU Musicians Network) will hold its first conference under its new name and with its new mission. This year’s conference is designed to get us outside our heads; to release our inner creative energy; color outside the lines and bring a fresh approach to the sacred work we do, how we do it and why. Conference attendees will experience a paperless delivery system for all materials and will read repertoire by Composers of Color.
This summer's event will also feature the first-ever Songleaders Convergence, a special track of programming focused on nurturing a deeper culture of singing in our congregations and wider community. To donate to Songleaders Convergence scholarships, please visit our Faithify campaign at https://faithify.org/projects/songleaders-convergence/ .
Joining us this year to help guide our work are:
- Mark Miller, composer and clinician, http://www.markamillermusic.com/
- J. Mase III, Black/trans/queer poet & educator, https://jmaseiii.com/
- Kathe Perez, speech pathologist with focus on trans voices, http://exceptionalvoiceapp.com/about/aboutkatheperez/
- Mark Harris, sound painter
- Travis Branam, youth choir leader, https://www.tedxmilehigh.com/speaker/travis-branam/
There will be something for everyone at this year’s conference! Instrumentalists, Choral Directors, Song Leaders, Ministers, Religious Educators and all other worship leaders - you will not want to miss this event.
Registration is now open!
