In this 2-hour workshop we will learn solo and group Bulgarian vocal warm-ups, a small ensemble piece and a large choral piece. Metric structure, ornamentation, regional styles, pronunciation and vocal production will all be covered in the workshop. No Bulgarian singing experience is required, but some singing experience is highly recommended. We will be learning at least two pieces, so we will move fast!
Learning to sing the incredible music of Bulgaria offers vast benefits. This music is renowned for its virtuosity in ornamentation and elaboration. Becoming familiar with its metric and melodic complexity gives singers profound understanding of many different musical idioms, making singers invaluable technically and creatively in recording sessions and other professional environments. The agility and breath management required are legendary, and are applicable and invaluable in any style of music.
Singing music of this kind with a group is truly phenomenal—come sing!
