Attention BUF WOMEN choir members!

Women’s Choral Workshop
Saturday, January 21, 2012 in Bellingham

Allegra Women’s Choir and artistic director, Ann MacDonald, invite you to join us on Saturday, January 21, 2012, in Bellingham, Washington when we host our first Women’s Choral Workshop. Now in our fifth season, Allegra Women's Choir has been educating singers in solid vocal technique and musical artistry while engaging in the performance of quality choral works in both classical and folk idioms. Joining us for the day will be Elektra Women’s Choir of Vancouver, B.C. under the direction of Morna Edmundson.  Elektra has taken a leadership role in the international classical women’s choir movement and will add their expertise, mentorship and enthusiasm to the day’s events.

Argentinean-Canadian mezzo-soprano, Fabiana Katz, will also be featured as one of our vocal workshop leaders and guest conductors. Fabiana is a highly sought after clinician and instructor. She shares her wealth of vocal knowledge and choral expertise in a fun, personable manner.

This day-long event will include a variety of workshop sessions covering topics that will enhance your individual vocal technique as well as workshops on topics specific to choral singing. The day will conclude with performances by all attendees, as well as performances by both Allegra Women’s Choir and Elektra Women’s Choir.

Details and registration can be found at our web site, Early registration discounts are available now through December 16, 2011. Group discounts are also available. The registration fee of $45* includes all workshops, catered lunch, and music.

We are very excited to host this event, and look forward to sharing this day of intensive choral music making with you, our fellow singing sisters! We hope to see you there!
