About this Event

Singing Saturdays with Ragnar Bohlin

An online choral workshop

SESSION SIX: DECEMBER 19 - BACH CHRISTMAS ORATORIO

(and seaonal favorites)

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."
