      Masterworks Sing-a-Long
      Our Sing-a-Longs are a fun way to perform a favorite work, or a great first step in learning new music. We begin with a brief rehearsal of the choral sections, break for tea or coffee, and then sing straight through the piece with organ accompaniment. Scores provided, or bring your own!

This three-part Workshop will help unlock the mysteries of the 9th and 10th century chant manuscripts using examples from the 2011 Graduale Novum in new transcriptions by chant specialist Sven Edward Olbash of
