We are excited to tell you about this summer’s Chorworks Summer School. This will be our 11th annual summer workshop, comprising music by the Bach family: Johann Sebastian and his forebears. We will explore the Bach Family Tree and sample the enormous musical riches of the extraordinary clan! Not surprisingly, there are quite a few Johanns in the picture:
Johann Bach (1604-1673)
Johann Christoph Bach (1642-1703)
Johann Michael Bach (1648-1694)
Johann Ludwig Bach (1677-1731)
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Our faculty this year includes some familiar faces as we welcome back Sally Dunkley from the UK, and soprano Rosa Lamoreaux who will be well-known to many in the DC area. We are delighted to welcome baritone Brian Ming Chu, joining us this year for the first time. Further information about the faculty can be found on our website, http://www.chorworks.com.
Based in the Music Department at George Washington University in Washington, DC, we offer our regular schedule of rehearsals, seminars, voice lessons and performances from Tuesday 28 June through to Saturday 2 July. On Monday 27 June, we offer an extra day of note-learning for those wishing to become more familiar with the music. To accommodate those with day-time commitments, we will be offering an evening track, with different music.
We hope that you will be interested in joining us, and that you will consider bringing some friends with you to share the fun and great music. Please will you forward the details to other singers? Chorworks is keen to attract participants in all voices – especially tenors and basses. We have reduced our tuition costs this year to encourage both new and returning singers, and we are also offering “bring a friend” discounts: bring a new singer with you and both of you will receive discounted tuition! Please see our website for further details, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bachs Await!
With best wishes from all of us at Chorworks,
