ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

This program was a lot of fun. It provided a sense of accomplishment as we prepared for our concert, and we became friends with our fellow singers. Our Director, Amy, was outstanding. She not only knows the field of music well, she knew how to get the best out of us as we sang. She is joyful, enthusiastic, energetic, patient beyohd belief, and a lot of fun!! We had a great time.

This program offers the opportunity to sing choral music while staying at a quaint, historic inn in a scenic location. Music director Amy and accompanist Rachel are both talented, enthusiastic, patient, and nurturing. I would not recommend this workshop for novices as there is a lot to learn in 3 1/2 days. Some musical experience/sight reading ability is definitely useful!

This was my second Fred Waring Choral Workshop at the Shawnee Inn with Amy Rau directing. Amy is a very patient, talented director--who gets "the best" out of any singer! Enjoy working with her and equally talented Rachael Heater, our accompanist. They make a great team! We had an interesting group of singers.....but could have used a few more on the men's parts. The Shawnee Institute team of Cindy and Midge carefully manage all the details for the event. The Shawnee Inn was in full springtime bloom. And, doing our concert on the stage of the Shawnee Playhouse was a treat. Great accommodations and buffet meals with healthy choices.

This program was well organized, full of a variety of music, educational, fun and a true joy to be part of. The director was wonderful, highly skilled, yet patient, full of enthusiasm and had a great sense of humor. The Road Scholar staff, as well as the hotel staff, were all cheerful and helpful with any and all questions. The PA location was picturesque, easy to find and serene. The rooms were well appointed, clean and we received cookies each night as part of their turn-down service (yum!). The food was good, often served as a buffet, so we certainly had our fill! The other participants ranged in ages from 55-85, with a wide range of vocal experience, and we all got along swimmingly. I would recommend it highly!

I agree wholeheartedly with Loretta. It was lots of fun, the location beautiful and hotel very nice. I do wish, though, that they had sent out the email list they had promised and also information on the video that was supposed to be posted on Youtube.

If you enjoy choral singing and can read music.......the Fred Waring Choral Workshop at the Shawnee Inn on the Delaware is the place for you! We had a fabulous week of sunny weather--and could almost watch surrounding trees blossom into their fall colors. Our energetic director kept us focused on the music--from familiar Waring arrangements to a very challenging medley from the Broadway show, Jekyll & Hyde. The week culminated in a concert.

When I look at the various programs offered, I wish that the travel directions also included train travel. I do not like to fly, and try to take trips by train. This still gives me the opportunity to travel to various parts of NE, NY, VT, and PA. But, some trips to VT which I would have loved to take assume that everyone is either flying or driving. For example, I would loved to have gone to the program that offered a SCrabble adventure in VT. But how to get there? I don't know, as information on trains and then possible bus connections was not available. I hope this can be changed in the future.
