There is still time to sign up for the 2014 OBF Choral Teachers Workshop! Not only will you have the opportunity to see Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College work with the 84 voice Stangeland Family Youth Choral Academy, you will also participate in Dr. Therees Hibbard's daily BodySinging classes and see how the SFYCA participants experience the engagement of the whole body when singing, and how that effects tone, phrasing, rhythmic integrity and musicality. In addition, you will sharpen your conducting skills and rehearsal techniques in seminars led by Dr. Sharon Paul of the University of Oregon and Anton Armstrong, hear from the new Program Director of Master Class in Conducting, Edward Maclary, and observe a rehearsal of the Master Class led by Helmuth Rilling.
Workshop dates are July 3 – July 7. Registrants are welcome to arrive earlier and stay later to observe additional SFYCA rehearsals. The registration fee is $300 and includes all workshop materials and select concert tickets. One graduate credit is available from the University of Oregon. Registration deadline is May 31.
