Chorworks is very sorry to have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Emerging Artists Program. In a statement issued today, Duke University announced:
“In light of the continuing uncertainty about our ability to safely conduct programming on campus over the next several months, Duke will be implementing the following changes for all university-sponsored summer programs: All Duke-sponsored academic curricular and co-curricular programs scheduled for the entire summer must be delivered remotely or online. No campus-based programming or classes will be permitted.”
Sadly, we cannot achieve our objectives online! We will obviously update our website as and when any alternative arrangements can be made. Please e-mail us at email@example.com to add your name to our mailing list so we can stay in touch with you.
Chorworks at Duke University: Emerging Artists Program 2020
Duke University Chapel & Divinity School, June 15 – 21.
Chorworks is excited to announce a major new initiative in association with Duke University Chapel. As part of Duke Chapel Music’s educational outreach in Sacred Music and the Arts, we are establishing an Emerging Artists Program – an in-depth summer workshop that aims to nurture the next generation of talented early music ensemble singers. This year’s program runs from June 15-21.
The Emerging Artists Program is intended for singers who are already quite advanced in vocal technique and above average readers, who are serious about pursuing musical study, and who are interested in broadening and deepening their understanding and experience of early music.
This summer, from June 15-21, the program offers a week of immersion in the sacred and secular music of Claudio Monteverdi. Distinguished faculty will lead repertoire sessions, ensemble and individual coaching, seminars on the music, its context, and on performance practice. The program will include informal performances and two public concerts. There may also be opportunities for some conducting coaching for those interested.
Those accepted for the program will receive a Fellowship which covers the full cost of tuition and housing on campus. Travel and meals are not included.
