Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will offer its 19th Annual Schola Cantorum: An Adult Choir Member Workshop, on Saturday, Jan. 22. The workshop will be held in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus and the Clara and Spencer Werner Auditorium on the seminary campus.
The Schola Cantorum is open to all choir members, choir directors and ministers of music.
The schedule begins with registration at 8:15 a.m., Morning Prayer at 8:45 a.m., and rehearsal sessions at 9:15 a.m. The day concludes at 3:30 p.m. after the Closing Prayer service, which will include some of the music learned that day.
This year’s clinician will be Dr. Timothy Peter, head of the music department and professor of music at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. Peter conducts the Collegiate Chorale, a 90-voice select junior-senior ensemble, and the Norsemen, a 90-voice men’s choir for freshmen.
Prior to the Schola Cantorum, Peter will lead a Choral Reading Session from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 21, guiding participants through an evening of choral and instrumental song in which he will preview new and current titles of music. The session is open to all, but is especially designed for choir directors. There is no charge to attend the Choral Reading Session, but registration is required.
Registration for the Schola Cantorum is $60 per person, or $110 per congregation ($70 and $125, respectively, after Jan. 7). For the congregation fee, a choir may send any number of members to the workshop. Lunch and the choral music are not included.
