CHANT CAMP - NOVEMBER 14
San Francisco Renaissance Voices is delighted to once again host
Anonymous 4’s Susan Hellauer and Marsha Genensky for another full-day
session of Chant Camp, this time featuring Medieval Sarum Chant.

structured around a number of carefully-chosen plainchant topics. The

own variation of the Roman liturgy throughout the Middle Ages until the

illustrated lecture, followed by plenty of group singing, to illustrate
and permanently “set” the lesson. The day’s workshop ends with a
communal chant singing, combining elements of the day’s work, along
with extensions and improvisations based on the day’s material.
This session contains all new material, so if you attended the April
2009 Camp you will still find something new to chant about!
Pre-registration is required and class size is limited so early
registration is recommended. Registration cost includes workshop, all
materials and hospitality. Register at: http://www.SFRV.org
