Gabriel Fauré – REQUIEM
Morten Lauridsen – LUX AETERNA
Chamber Choir repertoire to be announced.
Collegium Cincinnati is pleased to invite you to join us for SummerSing – Cincinnati’s hottest participatory choral festival. Cincinnati has a long and rich history of choral singing; at SummerSing, singers from all over the country unite for a week of rehearsals and social fun that culminates in electric performances of great choral repertoire.
In addition to making great music together, we make new friends! Food and drink after rehearsals and concerts are as important … well almost … as the singing.
Singers have the opportunity to perform with the instrumentalists of Collegium Cincinnati and will be offered the opportunity to take private voice lessons, improve their singer’s diction, and, most importantly, have fun!
THE MASTERWORKS CHOIR
Under the direction of the Collegium’s artistic director Christopher Eanes, the MasterWorks Choir will tackle the unmatched REQUIEM by Gabriel Fauré and the new classic LUX AETERNA by Morten Lauridsen. This program of light and transcendence is every choral singer’s dream!
Dates: July 22-28
THE CHAMBER CHOIR (Inaugural Season)
This year, for the first time, we will also be offering a Chamber Choir experience. Under the direction of guest conductor Christopher Shepard, this auditioned experience will offer 16-24 advanced singers the opportunity to prepare a program of finely crafted a cappella and accompanied works in an intimate setting.
Christopher Shepard is the conductor of CONCORA: Connecticut’s professional chorus, the Worcester Chorus, and the Masterwork Chorus of New Jersey. Most recently, he conducted a sold-out performance of Handel’s MESSIAH at Carnegie Hall. Chris is an engaging conductor with a distinguished career director both professional and avocational ensembles.
Dates: July 19-22
