Peter Niedmann will lead a very helpful workshop on choral arranging and music notation software. Peter,
a composer of more than 20 published anthems, will offer many ways to arrange and compose music for choir, organ, and piano. Descants, reharmonizations, “instant anthems,” instrument parts, small instrumental ensemble arranging, and other issues suggested by the attendees will be addressed. After lunch, Peter will demonstrate how to work with music notation soft- ware, specifically Sibelius. He will show many of the pertinent elements of this popular music software, and encourage attendees to try their hands at it.
