Many Voices, One Song: Beginning Polyphonic Song (with Caitlin Vitale-Sullivan)

June 22 @ 9:00 am - June 23 @ 4:30 pm

$130 – $230

This class explores the beauty of singing together in harmony. Through an exploration of polyphonic songs from a range of song traditions, we will learn two and three part songs and work on becoming comfortable with dissonance and non-western harmony structures. This course provides students with a full body approach to song learning that stems from listening and feeling music and harmonies to increase comfort in singing. Part singing, part practice, this course will also provide both experienced and new singers with tools for warming up, finding variations in tunes, and tools for development of expressive singing. The course consists of 2 days of instruction with breaks for lunch. Students can expect to learn by ear.

Instructions: Please bring a notebook, water bottle, clothing that will be comfortable both indoors and outdoors, and a device to record song parts if you wish.

Date: Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23
Time: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm each day
Lunch will be provided.
Ages: Adults only
Location: Old Main Building, 321 East Decker Street, Viroqua WI 54665

Sliding Scale Course Fee Guidelines:

Supporter Level Ticket: $230
If you move through the world with financial ease and the means to fulfill many of your wants as well as your needs – you are able to eat out when you want, abundantly meet your needs through employment or can comfortably not work, have access to family wealth, own property, etc. – consider paying at this level, which will help us ensure the long term sustainability of our programs while keeping our offerings accessible to those with access to fewer resources.

Sustainer Level Ticket: $180
If you are able to meet your needs with relative ease while budgeting your educational and entertainment spending – for instance, you are able to take classes and eat out occasionally as long as you are mindful – consider paying at this level, which will help sustain the work of the Folk School at a modest level.

Supported Level Ticket: $130
If you struggle to fund your basic needs and have limited access to resources in your family and community, or if you would not be able to access this offering without a discounted payment option, consider paying at this level. We value your presence and contributions to our community and do not want any economic circumstances to be a barrier to attendance!
