Welcome to Harmony Mountain Singers’ Winter/Spring 2021 season!
We have an amazing opportunity here to learn directly from special guest teachers, dig deep into the history, context, vocal styles, vocal technique, physical warm-ups, movement, soloing masterclasses and tons of learning resources for our new repertoire.
This course will be a combination of…
- pre-recorded video lessons
- lots of practice tracks and vocal exercises
- links to articles/videos/podcasts/recordings that will deepen your musical understanding.
- PLUS, Karla will be leading Zoom rehearsals to go over our material and there will be special guest Zoom instructors (Sophie Michaux from Boston, Moira Smiley from Vermont, Kathy Bullock from Kentucky, Dawn Pemberton, Michael Creber, Jennifer Scott and Billy Gollner from Vancouver )
The music for the term has been selected to work well in small groups or as a full choir. We will be putting together collaborative recording projects throughout the term. When it becomes safe to sing together again, we will do so! For now, safety first and let’s keep singing!
