Amherst College: June 20-24, 2018

Throughout the five-day program, SING! Adult participants (age 18 and older) will participate in a variety of fun and enriching classes that explore different vocal styles and genres, all designed for maximum enjoyment and personal growth. Music classes—solo and group technique, chamber music, choral ensemble, musical theater, and collegiate-style a cappella—focus on building vocal skills in solo, small group, and large ensemble technique. Evening offerings will include master classes, recitals, and workshops, all of which help build a vocal palette to use in all musical pursuits.

We also encourage you to check out the Sicily Choral Institute, led by Jerry Blackstone and Jonathan Hirsh, in Sciacca, Italy from July 21-27, 2018. This intensive summer workshop for conductors and choral singers from around the world will be an unforgettable singing opportunity for choral enthusiasts who participate at home in a large symphonic choir or in a smaller ensemble.  he challenging and varied repertoire encompasses several styles and periods and will include at least one extended set or major work conducted by Maestro Blackstone.
