Summer Sing 2019: June 4, 11, 18 and 25 at Rodef Shalom
Miss the camaraderie of choral singing in the summer? Don’t have time to join a choral group during the year? Simply love to sing? Come join us at the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh’s Summer Sing!
Jon Erik Schreiber, associate conductor of the Bach Choir, will lead four Tuesday evening sessions, each devoted to a major work. Open to singers of all levels. Sight-reading skills or a bit of advance practice will greatly enhance your experience. We will provide copies of the scores for each session.
$15 per session, or $45 for all four! Advanced Registration is highly encouraged.
Workshop Details & Materials
June 4, 7-10pm - Mozart 'Requiem'
To aid in your preparation, a pdf version of the score that we are using will be available online. You are not expected to print this out at home. A prepared score will be distributed as you check in.
Practice your parts! To enjoy the Summer Sing, a good chorister really ought to study their part ahead of time. Here are some resources to help you rehearse on your own:
June 11, 7-10pm - Britten 'Rejoice in the Lamb'
Check back for links to the score and YouTube videos.
Practice your parts! You will enjoy the Summer Sing more if you study your part ahead of time – here are some resources to help you rehearse on your own:
- cyberbass.com – change tempo while you rehearse your part with or without accompaniment
- choralia.net – this site is similar (and simpler) to cyberbass, but with a more “voice-like” timbre
- voiceparts.com – downloadable parts (only seems to be available for Alto and Bass)
Choir Parts is a YouTube based service providing voice parts as MIDI sequences with your part accentuated, played with an image of the score as a Youtube video:
