The Brahms Institute for Singers

The Brahms Institute for Singers

Every Thursday, from 09/17/2020 to 12/10/2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

How do we keep our voices strong while singing together is impossible? How do we keep our musical minds in gear? How do we stay connected with fellow singers? More importantly, how do we follow God's leading right now?

One answer to all of these questions is The Brahms Institute for Singers—an extraordinary opportunity for all singers, on Thursdays at 7 p.m. on Zoom!

This class is free and open to the public. Jennifer Whiting hosts. Anthony Quaranta leads us through vocal exercises. We will read new choral anthems and study Johannes Brahms' monumental German Requiem.

File this one under "stuff I never dreamed could happen as the result of a pandemic." My esteemed colleagues have generously offered to bring you their expertise through the magic of Zoom. Never before have we offered a class at Gary Church with such talent and wisdom from internationally acclaimed artists.

You will not want to miss this golden opportunity to study a choral masterwork with our distinguished guests...
