|ORIENTATION: We'll have an informative overview of the program to come plus an opportunity to meet the program staff and your fellow participants. We will review the schedule, cover responsibilities, safety guidelines, emergency procedures, and answer any questions you may have.|
We conclude the evening with an informal walk through the lovely Shawnee Institute campus.
You are about to embark on a musical adventure: reviving the Fred Waring Choral Workshop as you learn and perform some of Fred Waring's greatest hits. Fred Waring taught America how to sing through his glee club, recordings, radio shows broadcast exclusively from the Shawnee Playhouse, and television. Now it's your turn to be a part of Fred Waring's legacy. Road Scholar’s Fred Waring Choral Workshop is open to adults of all ages. While reading music is an advantage, it is not an absolute requirement, as you’ll learn the notes and turn them into music during intensive workshop sessions led by experts. The program culminates in a concert for the community.
