Calling all adults who love music, community and trying new things! Do you sing in the shower or while driving your car? Have you always wanted to try singing harmony in a group or considered taking voice lessons? Or perhaps you sang in your school choir and miss it?
Did you know? When people sing together, their heartbeats fall in sync! Singing together as a community can be traced back to the earliest history of humans. It is a natural, ancient practice and primal need that should still be a regular part of our modern culture. Yet, opportunities for adults and communities to sing together are sadly limited.
Spectrum Accord is our response to this need - a new and unique community singing opportunity for adults! Inspired by The Village Green Project, we believe all humans can - and should - sing together, experiencing the joyful power of uniting voices in harmony.
Accord singers will work with Spectrum Choral Academy's Artistic Director, Stephanie Charbonneau, and Collaborative Pianist, Julie Mandery, for five short weekly rehearsals and one performance! We will explore our singing voices in a casual and fun environment while working to create a beautiful and healthy vocal sound. Our five rehearsals will focus on 3-4 choral songs including Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World and Jim Papoulis' Stand Together to perform onstage with Spectrum Choral Academy at their May 20th Spring Concert. We may also lead the audience in a sing-along, so even more people can experience the joy of singing together! If this initial offering is popular and there is a desire within the local community to continue beyond the May concert, we will look into options for Spectrum Accord to continue gathering throughout the summer/fall.
Open to all age 18+.
No auditions / No previous music experience necessary.
Practice links and recordings will be provided for self study.
Spectrum Choral Academy parents & alumni are encouraged to participate!
Experienced singers are invited to help lead sections and teach harmonies.
