se•gue (pronounced: seg-wey): to make a transition from one thing to another smoothly.
Segue is a one day, high-energy event for youth choirs who are transitioning to the next level of ministry. Music selections are very accessible for beginning and intermediate level choirs. This experience will provide the interaction and inspiration students need to launch their choir ministry to the “next level.”
