The GIA Fall Institute is a celebration of our mission to serve the needs of musicians in all settings.

We’re bringing together leaders in music, worship, education, and formation to offer an assortment of skill building and enrichment workshops on subjects like choral rehearsal techniques, conducting, pastoral music, leadership, liturgy, theology, organ, piano, and spirituality. There will also be plenum addresses, ecumenical prayer opportunities, along with sacred and secular choral reading sessions.
