Two five-week sessions: Tuesdays 7:30–9:00 September 13—October 11 and October 18—November 15. $60 per five week session.
Come sing music from many times and places in two, three, or four parts. Using our voices and occasionally our hands and feet, we will make music drawn from cultures ranging from southern Africa to New England, from the 14th to the 21st century. Some of the sources we can draw on, depending on our personal tastes and talents: African village music, French and English folksongs, medieval chansons, Renaissance madrigals and songs, Balkan and Georgian songs, rounds, and shape-note hymns. Singing together in harmony is fun and better than fun–stimulating mind, body, and soul.
We will learn parts by ear. Word sheets and occasionally printed music will be provided, but there is no need to read music and no age limit. All you need is the ability to match pitch and carry a tune.
