Three-Part Harmony: What to Listen For, Which Notes to Sing
Sunday, June 22, 2014, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Music 2 - Room #108
Great three-part singing is magical, moving and can be hard to come by. Come learn why some notes work and others don't, and how to find the ones that do. This workshop is designed for singers eager to improve their harmony skills - perfection is not expected. Muse Crossing will demonstrate songs in a few different styles and then teach some common three-part harmonies, showing how to apply them in "real life." There will be sheet music for folks who like that sort of thing.
Shawn Dohring, Michèle Voillequé and Mark Walstrom are three very different musicians who love singing. Shawn learns nearly everything by ear and never goes anywhere without a hat and guitar. Michele is a classically trained soprano who sings and teaches voice for a living. Mark is multi-instrumentalist who loves European folk music. As Muse Crossing, they play eclectic acoustic arrangements of folk, popular and classical songs, always with an emphasis on tight vocal harmonies. They have been performing together for a little over a year in the East Bay, to great acclaim.
