Ogontz Choral Workshop
Now in its 29th season, this event is an extraordinary opportunity for singers, church musicians, and choral conductors to explore choral repertoire with some of the world’s leading choral directors. Participants will delve into Benjamin Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem with renowned British choral conductor David Hill, current director of London's Bach choir and Yale University’s Schola Cantorum. Hill will also lead singers through an exploration of Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, and Parry's “My soul, there is a country” from Songs of Farewell. He will offer a Conductor’s Seminar in which participants can receive mentoring in directing singers.
Mezzo-soprano Paula Rockwell of Acadia University, Nova Scotia, will lead master classes and sessions in vocal technique and will perform a recital for participants to enjoy. Ogontz Camp is a beautiful setting in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
