Spend a music-filled week with a gifted choral educator and conductor. This choral workshop will have you singing and enjoying music from America and around the world. Special presentations will provide insights about various composers and their contributions to choral music. From numerous selections presented throughout the week, we will choose our finest works to be performed in a concert for the public. Broaden your musical knowledge, join other choral singers from across the country, and take your enjoyment of singing to a new level.


• Rehearse up to six hours (with breaks) per day as the music director helps you polish your vocal technique and performance.
• Perform a concert for the public at a beautiful local facility.
• As a special highlight, attend a local theatrical performance with a pre-show talk by the director.

Date Notes
Please join us in Central Illinois as we celebrate "Three B's on the Prairie," exploring the music of the Three B's; Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. We'll sing some of Bach's beautiful choral works, including "Break Forth, Oh Beauteous Heavenly Light." Although best known for his piano and orchestral works, Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" from his 9th Symphony is an enjoyable work for singers. We'll also broaden our German skills by singing a couple of Brahms' "Liebeslieder Waltzes" and "Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes." Our program will include both sacred and secular works. You won't want to miss this musical adventure!

Coordinated by Lincoln Land Community College.
