The National Philharmonic and Music Department of Montgomery College are joining forces once again this summer to offer choral music opportunities for adults, college, and high school students:
The Adult Summer Choral Institute (July 8, 10, 15, 17, 18) invites adults to sing with members of the National Philharmonic Chorale under Artistic Director Stan Engebretson, Montgomery College professor Dr. Molly Donnelly, and National Philharmonic Associate Conductor Victoria Gau in four intensive rehearsals over two inspiring weeks.  Adults singers (college age and over) with prior experience of singing in a choir will find this an excellent opportunity to perform in a large ensemble while building musicianship and vocal technique.  Tuition is $80.
Adult SCI repertoire includes:
Britten, Festival Te Deum
Brahms, selected Liebeslieder Waltzes
PDQ Bach, selected Liebeslieder Polkas
Hogan, Music Down in My Soul
The 2014 High School/College Summer Choral Institute(July 14-18) offers an exciting opportunity for young singers to build their voices - and to learn from some of the best choral educators in the area.  The week is designed to help high school (including rising freshmen) and college age singers strengthen their musicianship and foster their love of great music.
       HS/College SCI repertoire includes:
Purcell, Te Deum
Saffell, ...a meandering
Chile con Carne
Brahms, selected Liebeslieder Waltzes
PDQ Bach, selected LIebeslieder Polkas
Hogan, Music Down in My Soul
The Institute offers an intensive week (2:30 – 8:30 pm daily) of coaching, master classes, small- and large-group rehearsals. The week culminates in a final performance together with members of the Adult Summer Choral Institute and includes works sung by the combined choruses of approximately 130 singers. The Institute will be led by Dr. Stan Engebretson, Artistic Director of the National Philharmonic Chorale and head of Choral Music at George Mason University; Dr. Molly Donnelly, a nationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano and Professor of Voice and Choral Music at Montgomery College; Ronald Frezzo, Vocal Instructor at Richard Montgomery High School and the 2010 MMEA Music Teacher of the Year; and Victoria Gau, Associate Conductor of the National Philharmonic.
