Oregon Bach Festival announces new Choral Teachers Workshop

Location: Oregon, USA
Choir type: Children's and Youth Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
In the OBF's new Choral Teachers Workshop, high school choral teachers will have the opportunity to work first hand with national choral leaders and guest artists like Bobby McFerrin.

Under the guidance of University of Oregon professor Sharon Paul, teachers will participate actively in seminars and attend concerts. They will also observe rehearsals of the 80-plus high school singers of the Stangeland Family Youth Choral Academy — some of the best in the nation — directed by acclaimed conductors Anton Armstrong and Helmuth Rilling.

The workshop aims to help teachers:

  • Develop more effective rehearsal techniques
  • Study scores and absorb new techniques to get the most out of performances
  • Reinforce workshop topics as you observe rehearsals with Rilling, Armstrong and Bobby McFerrin
  • Develop ways you can take workshop ideas home to your own classrooms
  • Learn about the ways the SFYCA can benefit your students
  • Refresh your craft in a collegial environment
  • Further apply what you’ve learned as you attend OBF concerts

The Registration Fee is $195 per person and includes all workshop materials and a ticket to the July 5 SFYCA concert with Bobby McFerrin.  The 2010 SFYCA program takes place June 24 - July 5. in Eugene, Oregon.
