While we are not able to sing together at beautiful Ogontz Camp in 2020, Ogontz Arts Foundation will host a three-day choral workshop on Zoom, Monday through Wednesday, August 3, 4, and 5.
David Hill, director of London’s Bach Choir and Yale’s Schola Cantorum, will lead two sessions a day, exploring a different masterwork each day and providing insight into the context and meaning of each piece.
Paula Rockwell, mezzo-soprano, will lead warm-ups and collaborate with David in helping singers navigate the vocal challenges of each piece. She also will provide a master class opportunity and host a virtual recital, a retrospective of past favorite performances`.
Additional activities are being planned, including yoga for singers and social time at the virtual Green Chairs.
Cost: $75 per day or $200 for all three days (USD)
Deadline for registration and payment: Wednesday 29 July
Repertoire (digital scores will be available):
Monday: Ludwig Beethoven’s Mass in C, in celebration of his 250th anniversary
Tuesday: J.S. Bach’s Magnificat
Wednesday: John Rutter’s Requiem, including a special guest appearance!
