UMBRIAN SERENADES is a life-transforming 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 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.
In addition to performing under amazing frescos and art work from the Italian Renaissance, and in sacred spaces and cathedrals such as the Basilica of St. Francis in ASSISI and the Duomo of SPOLETO, 2010 participants will get to perform under Musical America Conductor of the Year (2004), JOSEPH FLUMMERFELT, as well as participate in a conducting master class during the 12-day stay in Umbria, Italy.
