Choral workshops feature Con

Come sing with us!

That’s the call from the Encore! Women’s Choir and they’re not asking you to join them, but instead to take part in two special singing workshops for male and female voices on Saturday, Nov. 8.

They’ll feature UVic’s Dr. Adam Con, who is highly regarded in choral circles in Canada and the U.S. as a conductor and music teacher.

A third generation Chinese Canadian, he describes his approach to choral singing as "holistic through a unique blend of kinesthetic whole body movement and eastern philosophy".

He said his aim is "to provide inspiration to singers of all ages in mind, body and spirit."

Con’s motto: "Music is more than notes in motion; music is notes in emotion."

An SATB workshop will begin at 1 p.m. and run until 2:45 p.m. at which time the sopranos and altos will be dismissed.

Then, the workshop will continue for tenors and basses from 3-4:15 p.m. Prices are $25 for tenors and basses for a full day, $15 for the tenor/bass afternoon session and $20 for the morning SATB alone. Music used at all workshops will be provided.

For more information, please contact Ann Yelland (250-748-1010 or yla@shaw.ca) or Christine Dandy (250-715-1568 or cdandy@shaw.ca) or encorewomenschoir.com
