Class Descriptions

Listening vs Hearing, Watching vs Believing - It's All About Performance            Angie Dolbar
In this class we’ll talk about the basics of the Performance Category and how the other two categories can enhance the performance experience as well. By looking at various performances, and even trying a little ourselves, we’ll talk about words like artistry, authenticity and how you can truly entertain the audience.

Vocal Freedom: Release Your Natural Voice            Amy Patterson

We all want to sing freely, naturally, and with ease, right? How often have you heard a director or coach say “just release the tension” or “stop pushing the sound”? In this experiential class, we’ll delve into the concept of primal sounds and natural breathing to help you find your best—and most natural—voice.

Membership Roundtable: Brainstorming ideas to grow membership            Beth Montgomery
This class is for chorus members who are interested in brainstorming ideas to recruit and retain members for your chapters. We will have new ideas, look at what has worked for your chapters and see how we can incorporate different platforms to grow our Harmony chapters! Please join us for a fun and informative class!
