Join with us at our next Community Choral Workshop and experience the joy of singing. Artistic Director Paul Terracini will present an afternoon of learning and performing a choral work, accompanied by local string players The Kedumba Quartet. The work to be studied is Sacred Heart (Ubi Caritas lll) by contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, which is sung in Latin. Prior language skills are not needed for the workshop, although basic music-reading skills would be an advantage.
Why sing in Latin? Vocal music editor and pedagogue Robert Hines: "Liturgical (Ecclestiacal) Latin is unquestionably the second language of the choral conductor and choral singer, and certainly a basic language for the professional who performs solo recitals, chamber music, or the large choral-symphonic masterpieces of Bach, Bruckner, Dvorak, Haydn, Mozart and Verdi".
Paul Terracini: "Mastering the Latin vowels is a crucial ingredient in the learning process for every aspiring chorister".
Paul is an expert coach and instills wonderful linguistic skills in his choristers.
