SINGERS NEEDED FOR A CAPPELLA PROGRAM IN ITALY
- 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 perform in a small chamber ensemble, 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. UNIQUE TO SUMMER OF 2011 IS THE ENSEMBLE'S PARTICIPATION IN THE GIAN CARLO MENOTTI CENTENARY CELEBRATION IN THE TOWN OF SPOLETO.
DR. JOSEPH FLUMMERFELT, Musical America 2004 Conductor of the Year, will return to the program and conduct the ensemble. Graduate Credit (1 unit) available through Westminster Choir College/Rider University.
