An In-Depth Immersion in Time-Tested Practices For Organists and Choir Directors Who Lead Worship
In working with Dr. Horisberger, attendees will review/learn the basics of choral conducting, examining how movements inform and inspire singers. In addition, you’ll discuss conducting techniques that achieve maximum effect and nuance, as well as appropriate choral tone and balance, both with trained and untrained singers. In working with Dr. Arcus, attendees will address hymn playing in context with special emphasis on text and learn improvisation using classical forms to link parts of worship.
Attendees will work with master musicians who have excelled in performance (David Arcus as Duke University’s Chapel Organist and Don Horisberger as Associate Conductor of the Chicago Symphony Chorus) while achieving high standards of musical excellence with lay musicians in church settings. Organists who work with David Arcus and choral directors who work with Don Horisberger, will have a chance to register for masterclass participation (or as an observer if they prefer) to receive advanced instruction during the 24 hours.
