Come and Sing with Bob Chilcott!
Be a part of this year’s ACDA Raymond W. Brock Memorial Composition première through virtual informative chats, dialogue (Q&A), and rehearsals led by 2021 Brock composer Bob Chilcott!
The acclaimed composer, conductor, and former King’s Singer Bob Chilcott is joined by poet Delphine Chalmers to introduce and rehearse movements from this year’s Brock commission, Songs my heart has taught me, in three interactive workshops in February. On Saturday, March 20, 2021, Bob conducts the BBC Singers in the première performance, given as part of the ACDA Virtual National Conference, which workshop participants may simply enjoy listening to or may participate in (in the privacy of their home). ACDA is delighted to offer these workshops free of charge.
Online hour-long workshops will take place on the following dates:
- SA/Treble voices: Sunday, February 7, 2021; 2:00 p.m. CST – Register here
- TB/Lower voices: Sunday, February 21, 2021; 2:00 p.m. CST – Register here
- SATB/All voices: Sunday, February 28, 2021; 2:00 p.m. CST – Register here
To participate in a workshop, please click the “Register here” (above) next to the workshop in which you want to participate. We anticipate each registrant will want to participate in EITHER the SA or TB workshop PLUS the final SATB workshop. You will need to register for EACH workshop separately.
The workshop music to Songs my heart has taught me will include only the first and last movements entitled “Unison” and “Resolution.” They will be available to view only in a digital format through J.W. Pepper’s ePrintGO app. As we get closer to the workshop dates, a link to access the digital file will be sent to those who have registered.
The complete score to Songs my heart has taught me (Oxford University Press) will be available for sale beginning February 1, 2021 through all of Oxford’s digital dealers including J.W. Pepper, Sheet Music Plus, Stanton’s, and Pender’s Music.
