SARTEANO CHAMBER CHORAL CONDUCTING WORKSHOP, ITALY (TUSCANY) 27 July – 3 August 2013 with Simon Carrington, Bronislawa Falinska and Brian O’Connell

This intensive and supportive conducting workshop is geared for 26-30 music educators and choral conductors with strong vocal ability who are interested in rehearsing and performing chamber choral music. We very HEARTILY welcome qualified singers who are interested in attending the workshop in a non-conducting capacity; who love to sing in a chamber group environment and/or are very specifically looking to learn rehearsal and conducting techniques. Up to two graduate credits are available through The Boston Conservatory. There are three possible tiers of participation: Full Conductor, Conducting Auditor, Singer. The afternoon session will consist solely of daily conducting Master Classes with Simon Carrington. Enrollment is limited to 10 Full Conductors. Each Full Conductor will conduct in every Master Class. EVERYONE sings – the Master Class uses the entire workshop ensemble as its laboratory, so everyone receives the benefits of each day’s 4.5 hour Master Class with Simon. Conducting Auditors will have an assigned time to conduct the ensemble, and are also scheduled for a private videoed conducting session with Simon. Over the course of the week, two Conducting Auditor’s are also chosen to rehearse the ensemble and conduct a piece in the final concert from the CA’s morning repertoire. The two-part morning sessions will consist of Vocal Pedagogy ensemble work with Bronislawa Falinska utilizing the Rohmert Method of Functional Voicetraining, and clinics on developing a vital chamber choir, with Brian O’Connell. We are also delighted to again offer a Q&A/Dialogue interest session with Simon.
