Join this fun ensemble in which we sing songs from all over the world. This fall semester we will be doing Celtic music, so that means songs from Scotland, Ireland, maybe Brittany and parts of North America. Some of the repertoire will be in Gaelic. These songs have surprising rhythms and harmonies and often demand new and fun ways to use your voices The ensemble performs a few times during the semester, usually a cappella but some songs also have guitar and/or percussion accompaniment, and maybe even a whistle or other instrumental part, depending on what our members can do. Expand your horizons, and come and sing world music! Grade is A-F, audition required, 1 credit. Rehearsals M-W from 3 -3:55 PM. Directed by Peggy Larson.
