Creating a musical story – dramaturgy in choir performances – Sofia Gioldasi & Basilio Astulez
In this workshop, led by children’s choir specialists Sofia Gioldasi and Basilio Astulez, you discover how you can create a concert programme for children and youth choirs, by using a single short-term story.
They cover topics like: What are the important elements when choosing a story? How do you combine songs from different styles and era’s within the same performance? How can you intertwine the songs with the text and with all the other elements of the performance (such as choral body movements, dance, storytelling, etc.)?
The participants and workshop leaders will gather a variety of choral songs for equal voices to be used, in order to eventually create a complete staged performance!
Preparing for the workshop
Read this story in advance and think of one choral song for equal voices choir, easy to medium level (SA or SSA), that could fit the atmosphere of the story. Please bring this along to the workshop!
