Voices of Music — Virtual Class Offering
“Jacob van Eyck: Courant, of Harte diefje waerom zoo stil with Hanneke van Proosdij.” How does Van Eyck approach Dowland’s famous tune “The Frog Galliard” and why was it popular even 50 years later? By looking at the historical and political background we gain understanding of how this tune could have been interpreted at the time of Van Eyck. In this class we explore how we can play these variations, and how we might make our own variations in this style.

Amateur Music Network — Singing Saturdays with Ragnar Bohlin
SF Symphony Chorus Director Ragnar Bohlin will join us from his home in Sweden for a six-session series to hone your choral singing skills. We’ll gather for healthy vocal warm-ups and then explore some of your favorites from the choral repertoire.From Ragnar: “Each session is an hour-long exploration of techniques that will make selected passages from a great choral work beautiful and musical. Although they are not choral rehearsals as such, they will include interludes of singing together through parts and movements of the pieces being studied.”
