Cambridge Chant Camp Oct 4-5 with Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4
- Susan Hellauer, singer, teacher, researcher and founding member of the renowned vocal ensemble Anonymous 4 will lead a Chant Camp, sponsored by Recorders/Early Music MetroWest on Saturday and Sunday, October 4-5, 2008 at St. Paul Roman Catholic Church in Cambridge MA. Two Chant Camp sessions are offered: a full day on Saturday, October 4, and an afternoon session on Sunday, October 5. Each session is limited to 30 participants.
Chant Camp is a participatory program of chant singing, structured around a number of carefully-chosen plainchant topics. Each topic presentation begins with a brief, informative, 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.
