Centered around the convention center, concerts and sessions will be within easy walking distance of the Sheraton, Westin, and Hilton, and plentiful restaurants. Both performance venues, First United Methodist Church and the Gold Room in the Civic Auditorium, possess stunning acoustics. The three honor choirs, conducted by Francesco Núñez, Maria Guinand, and Judith Herrington, will perform in the grand Civic Auditorium.
