Ogontz Choral Workshop

Sunday July 23 through Saturday July 29

Now in its 28th season, the Ogontz Choral Workshop will take place from Sunday 23 July to Saturday 29 July at Ogontz Camp, a beautiful retreat in Lyman, New Hampshire. This is an extraordinary opportunity for singers, church musicians, and choral conductors to work on choral repertoire with some of the world’s leading choral directors. Participants will delve into Edward Elgar’s The Dream of Geronitus with renowned British choral conductor David Hill, director of the UK’s BBC Singers and The Bach Choir, as well as Yale University’s Schola Cantorum. Hill will also lead singers through an exploration of European Sacred Music (Oxford Choral Classics, ed. John Rutter), an anthology of over 50 choral gems from the last five centuries, and will lead a Conductor’s Seminar in which participants can receive mentoring in directing singers. Mezzo-soprano Paula Rockwell of Acadia University, Nova Scotia, will lead master classes and sessions in vocal technique.

Students enrolled in college are eligible for a discounted rate. Other participants can take advantage of an Early Bird Discount through March 15. Full details and registration are available at ogontzarts.com. Questions? Contact Claire Meadat 215-962-2998 or claire@ogontzarts.com.

The Upper Valley Singers – Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem

Sunday, August 27 at 2pm at the  Mary Keane Chapel in Enfield, NH

The Upper Valley Singers, with Director Hal Sheeler and organist Henry Danaher, will perform Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem on Sunday 27 August at 2:00 pm in Mary Keane Chapel, Route 4A, Enfield.

The Requiem, completed in 1947, is perhaps Duruflé’s best-known work. It is challenging for the performers and tremendously rewarding, both musically and emotionally.

The Mary Keane Chapel was built by the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette between 1930 and 1931 to designs by Donat R. Baribault of Springfield, Massachusetts. The sanctuary features spectacular German stained glass produced by the Zettler Studios, as well as a renowned Casavant organ that will be showcased in this performance.

Admission is by donation ($15–20 suggested), which will help support the preservation of Mary Keane Chapel.
