Great news! Peggy Dettwiler and I have been invited to give a seminar at the 10th World Symposium on Choral Music in Seoul, Korea in August 2014. Our program is entitled: “Overtone Singing as a Choral Art.” Our presentation will fit in well with the unifying theme for WSCM-10: the concept of Youth and ‘Healing’ as a means of understanding through choral music. There are 75 minutes of time alloted to our program, and we will present it twice at the symposium.
Dr. Dettwiler, Director of Choirs at Mansfield University, has performed choral works using overtone singing on many occasions, including the well-known ‘Past Life Melodies” of Sarah Hopkins and several of my compositions. I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with Peggy and excited to be a part of this prestigious conference for choral professionals from all around the world!
