THE CECILIA CHORUS OF NEW YORK PRESENTS

Summer Singposium 2019

BACH IN CONTEXT

Join Music Director Mark Shapiro and The Cecilia Chorus of New York in a stimulating evening of choral singing and musical enlightenment.

Maestro Shapiro will lead participants in choral movements from the Kyrie, Gloria and Agnus Dei of the incomparable Mass in B minor, and demonstrate techniques and approaches Bach uses.

It’s a great opportunity to learn or revisit interesting information about harmony, counterpoint, rhythm, and texture.

With piano accompaniment. Scores provided.
