Love to Sing? Vocal Ensemble Opportunities for Students, Faculty, and Staff

submitted by

Augsburg University Music announces two unique vocal ensemble opportunities open to the Augsburg community.

For students, faculty, and staff:

The Augsburg/Twin Cities Global Harmony Project is open to students, staff, faculty, and community members. Available to students for course credit, this choir assumes no music-reading ability. The core of the curriculum is shared with our community cohort, open to anyone in the greater Metro area within driving distance of a weekly, joint rehearsal. This choir receives direct instruction from culture-bearers sharing their vocal harmony traditions from many continents. Our artist-instructors, teaching via the oral method, have taught us in regional styles from Appalachia, Bosnia, Corsica, Cuba, the Republic of Georgia, Iran, Madagascar, Nigeria, Quebec, Siberia, South Africa, Sweden, Ukraine, and the traditional Black gospel churches of the United States.

For students:

For singers with a firm base in music-literacy skills, the Augsburg/Mirandola Chamber Collective course brings students into weekly side-by-side study, rehearsal, and performance collaboration with the professional chamber artists of The Mirandola Ensemble. Students enrolled in this ensemble will also perform the international repertoire at the core of the Augsburg/Twin Cities Global Harmony Project.

Placement hearings will be held August 31–September 2. For details, visit the Music Department website or send questions to Dr. Kristina Boerger:
