What: Come and sing English and Italian madrigals (examples: The Silver Swan; Now is the Month of Maying; Come Again, Sweet Love; Fair Phyllis; Amo, Amas, I Love a Lass). We’ll throw in some songs from our old Europa Cantat books as well. Ralph Nelson will play and conduct. We’ll learn about 8 songs before we break for dessert; then we’ll come back and learn another 5-8 or so more songs. Finally, we'll sing through some of our favorites one more time.
When: Friday, August 22nd, 2014 from 7pm-9pm at the home of Ralph and Sue Nelson, NE Portland; or Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 from 7pm-9pm at the home of Julie and Andy Beck, Beaverton. Exact address will be sent with reservation confirmation. Both locations are air-conditioned.
Cost: $25 per person; if paid by check, payable to the Bach Cantata Choir.
Who: Anyone who likes to sing! Ralph will teach the songs in a lively, fun manner. We are, however, limited to 20 singers per evening.
Advance reservations are required: To reserve a spot, fill out the online registration form or email us. We'll provide directions and payment instructions with your confirmation.
