Sarteano Chamber Choral Conducting Workshop w/Simon Carrington, Bronislawa Falinska and Brian O'Connell

23 - 30 July, 2011
Sarteano (Tuscany), Italy

This intensive and supportive conducting workshop is geared for music educators and choral conductors with strong vocal ability who are interested in rehearsing and performing chamber choral music. We heartily welcome qualified singers who are interested in attending the workshop in a non-conducting capacity; who love to sing in a chamber group environment and/or are very specifically looking to learn rehearsal and conducting techniques. Up to two graduate credits are available through The Boston Conservatory.

There are three possible tiers of participation: Full Conductor, Conducting Auditor, and Singer.

This will be the 7th consecutive year of Simon, Broni and Brian working together in Sarteano!

The afternoon session will consist solely of daily conducting Master Classes with Simon Carrington. Each Full Conductor will conduct in every master class. This year we are again delighted to offer a Q&A/Dialogue session with Simon. Simon also rehearses the ensemble and conducts a piece in the final concert.

The two-part morning session will consist of group Vocal Pedagogy with Bronislawa Falinska utilizing the Rohmert Method of Functional Voicetraining, a method not commonly found in the States; and clinics on developing a vital chamber choir, with Brian O'Connell. Conducting Auditors will also have time to conduct the ensemble.
