BMS 2021 Workshop: Chant
October 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
The Berwick Music Series combines live concerts by nationally and internationally known performers, and educational events for those who would like to know more about classical and modern music. There is a Northern flavour to this year’s Series: there are North Eastern composers featured in our concerts, one of our lectures is on composers from the North East; and we have a composition competition on the theme “North”.
The physical and emotional benefits of chanting have been well documented in the scientific literature. In this workshop, participants will learn about chanting traditions around the world and have the opportunity to sample several chanting practices, from Japanese chant to a modern American chant about pandas. All are welcome and no previous experience or ability with singing is needed. Come and experience the joy of making sound in a group!
This workshop is free, but please register here.

All are welcome and no previous knowledge is assumed.
