The Chamber Choir is a chance to refresh vocal skills and study the great works of choral literature in the intimacy of a chamber vocal ensemble.  Spend one-week rehearsing the following works with acclaimed choral conductor, virtuoso recorder player and composer, Matthias Maute:
P.I. Tchaikovsky: Hymn of the Cherubim
C. Monteverdi: Hor che’l ciel
J. Brahms: 7 Lieder für gemischten Chor
J.S. Bach: Missa in g minor BWV 235
In addition to voice-coaching and individual lessons with vocal coaches, choir participants are invited to gather together in the morning to sing movements from F. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s Elijah with participants from the Chamber Music and Piano Masterclass programs under Matthias’ direction. The week will culminate with a performance in Walter Hall.
