July 31 – August 3, 2017 • 3:15 – 4:30PM
This workshop is open to high school age children in the Mixed Choir Camp who want to delve deeper into the sublime beauty of the Church’s unique musical heritage of Gregorian Chant. Students will learn the fundamentals of reading and singing chant and explore the dynamic and rhythmic subtleties of this most ancient art. They will also delve into some of the history of chant, including the development of music notation.
This class will be taught at a college level and include up to an hour of homework to be completed each evening.
Along with the Treble Training Camp and Mixed Choir Camp, the children will sing in a recital for family, friends, and guests on August 4 at 2PM in the church, to showcase some of the progress they have made.
Fee: $25 in addition to the Mixed Choir Camp fee
