• Balkan Singing for Vocal Power and Harmonic Thrills

  • with Erica Weiss

We will learn techniques to increase vocal strength and projection, exploring a style that has similarities to Country, Appalachian, Cajun, and other traditionally non-amplified singing; play with funky yet natural rhythms outside of the familiar; explore and experiment with two and three (or more) part harmonies both chorally beautiful and eerily dissonant. We will learn gorgeous fully arranged pieces as well as more raw “village style” songs. In addition to joyful singing, a goal will be to inspire new possibilities and approaches to whatever songwriting and singing styles participants primarily love.
