“Give Sound to Words: Say a word. Sing the same. Hear a song or sing it, too.”
A crash course in what inspires poets to write songs and composers to use certain poems, and a chance for us to bring our own words and music to life together. We will learn how to set words to music and how accompaniments can serve to illustrate texts. We will receive singing instruction and, of course, get to hear some beautiful music and sing some, too.
Friday July 12th, 7:00 PM Concert: With Danny Dover (poetry) & Dorothy Robson (piano), and Tom Kinder (poetry) & Annemieke McLane (piano)
Saturday July 13th, 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM:
