Would you like to treat yourself to a spirit-reviving week of harmony singing and listening- no cares, no dishes, no office, no driving, and no distractions?
The music is accessible to all, no audition, vocal or note –reading expertise necessary, just the desire to come together in a beautiful place to sing. We will prepare choral music as well as duets, trios and quartets. Our repertoire may include world traditional, classical, southern gospel, chant, contemporary folk and improvisational music.
See below for upcoming retreats both here and abroad.
How would you like to sing and speak with confidence and authority? Feel that your voice is completely you? Have your voice reflect the image you want to project with an unobstructed, breath-supported sound?
The ability to express yourself vocally, through a virtually infinite variety of sounds is one of your most precious gifts. Almost all of us are born with a voice of great natural breadth and scope, with voices that can be big without hurting or soft, and still be heard. But as the demands of life increase, the voice constricts and modifies – and we lose access to its power. I will help you reclaim this vital capacity.
Ensemble Singing for Pure Joy
Would you like to sing in a choral ensemble? Never have? Fine. You’ve sung in a chorus for years? Also fine. We’ll include the beginners and the more advanced singers in learning songs, rounds, chants and arranged choral music by composers from Bobby McFerrin to Steve Reich. In the first hour, you’ll surprise yourself by being able to learn and sing a piece together. By hour two, you’ll have two more under your belt. By the end, we may have five songs to enjoy and perform.
Learn tips on how to strengthen your voice, increase your range and projection. Grow in confidence while making new friends, rehearsing music for appreciation and performance. Come and join us to sing in unison, 2 – 4-part harmony, learn the basics of sight-singing, laugh at our mistakes and make a joyful noise!
