Cost: $25 per person, payable to the Bach Cantata Choir.
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 as well from our old Europa Cantat books. Ralph 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 sing through some our favorites one more time.
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 – email Ralph at email@example.com and send a check, payable to Bach Cantata Choir to Ralph Nelson, 3570 NE Mathison Pl., Portland, OR 97212. We'll provide directions to the event with your confirmation. Also, please include your mailing address – we will send a copy of the music to you a couple of weeks ahead of time so you can practice.
