Wherever the Canadian Chamber Choir performs, they are met with praise for their expressive, committed interpretations, and their warm enthusiasm for sharing their gifts in the community. The Canadian Chamber Choir is about opportunity, and about excellence – opportunity for musicians from across the country to gather in song and reach for artistic heights; opportunity for communities, large and small, to share in that experience.
Choral Workshop with the Canadian Chamber Choir co-sponsored by the UNB Faculty of Education and the UNB Conservatory of Music: Tuesday, September 16, 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. at Memorial Hall, UNB campus.
Conductor Julia Davids, assisted by the members of the Canadian Chamber Choir, will help local choristers get the season off to a good start with a lively and informative session which will include tips for improving breath control, resonance, vowel production, range and special choral techniques. Following a short mini concert by the Canadian Chamber Choir, workshop participants will have an opportunity to apply these skills to a new piece, “Arching Starlight”, with composer Jeff Enns at the piano.
There is no charge for participation in this workshop.
