Eclectic Chorus

Wilkins School Community Center, 7604 Charleston Avenue, Swissvale, PA

Eclectic Chorus: harmony singing from all over the map

 Five-week sessions: Begins September 10th Wednesdays 7:30—9:00 PM. $60 for a five-week session.

 Come  sing music from many times and places in two, three, or four parts. Using just our voices and occasionally our hands and feet we will make music drawn from cultures ranging from southern Africa to New England, from the 14th to the 21st century. Some of the sources we can draw on, depending on our personal tastes and talents: African village music, French and English folksongs, medieval chansons, Renaissance madrigals and songs, Balkan and Georgian songs, rounds, and shape-note hymns. Bring your own favorite songs if you'd like to! Singing together in harmony is fun and better than fun--stimulating mind, body, and soul. 

 We will learn parts by ear. Word sheets and occasionally printed music will be provided, but there is no need to read music. All you need is the ability to match pitch and carry a tune

$60 for five weeks
