1018 Farmington Ave., West Hartford

Yale University choral conductor, Jeffrey Douma, will lead a masterclass designed for church musicians. Three volunteer conductors will work with a choir on his or her choice of two anthems, and will receive helpful suggestions and methods to improve their skills and technique.

GROUP 1.
Ave Verum Corpus – Byrd; Locus Iste – Bruckner; Justorum Animae – Stanford

GROUP 2.
Antiphon (5 Mystical Songs) – Vaughan Williams; Jubilate Deo – Britten; Christ the Lord is Risen Again – Rutter

Each conductor will choose a piece from Group 1 and Group 2.

The choir still needs a few tenors. If you would like to volunteer, email Peter Niedmann at .

This promises to be an informative and inspiring morning, whether you are conducting or observing. See you there!
