UMBRIAN SERENADES is now accepting applications and scheduling fall
hearings for its 2008 July 16-28 Summer Session!
UMBRIAN SERENADES is a life-transforming summer choral program that
brings together passionate singers from all over the U.S. who seek
opportunities to perform exquisite a cappella repertoire within a
small vocal chamber ensemble. These choral enthusiasts come together
to enhance their vocal, musicianship, and ensemble skills, as well as
savor all that small medieval hilltop towns in the heart of Italy can
offer culturally, be it wine, olive oil, cooking, and the like. This
select 20-voice chamber ensemble performs sacred a cappella vocal
works, spanning from Renaissance to Gospel, Spiritual and Contemporary
repertoire in unique spaces throughout the lush and breathtaking hills
of Umbria and Tuscany. Performances include the Duomo Cathedral in
Spoleto, the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, and in the historic
center of Siena, Tuscany.
