Curry College Vocal Workshop

Saturday February 9, 2019 9am-2pm
Concert at 1:15pm
Festival with vocal workshops led by vocologists from VoiceScienceWorks
Location: Curry College, Keith Auditorium in the Academic and Performance Center (Campus map and directions)
Open to the public

Voice science is far more enjoyable and memorable when experienced through the creative process. This workshop will introduce key voice science components during the learning and creation of ensemble pieces. Participants will learn out of the box vocalizations like overtone singing, explore how emotion plays a key role in memory and learning, discover quick ways to achieve resonant strategies that boost the voice’s potential, engage in new listening tools, and enjoy the pleasure of creating with other vocalists. The workshop is open to anyone who would like to spend a memorable day creating with their voices. A concert will wrap up the week of arts and science collaboration at Curry.

2017 Spring Concert: Subversive Tonality

Saturday, April 8, 2017 @ 8:00 P.M.
Harvard-Epworth Church, 1555 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138

Sunday, April 9, 2017 @ 8:00 P.M.

Triad’s “Subversive Tonality” concert presents new choral music that reinvents and rejuvenates tonal norms—music that refers to, comments upon, and subverts the familiar harmonies used by Bach and Mozart. You will hear common chords in new contexts: noble, creepy, crazy, sophisticated, and spiritual. The program features a jazz-pop piece as well as premieres of new works by Triad composers Thomas Stumpf, Emma Daniels, Jeremy Faust, and Julian Bryson. Two of the premieres incorporate a string quartet.

Receptions, food, and drink will follow both concerts. Tickets are $10 at the door.
