creative vocal ensemble

Bob Stoloff’s Creative Vocal Ensemble 
embraces both traditional and contemporary forms of group singing, featuring works by well-known composers and arrangers.. C.V.E. is also a platform for contemporary group improvisation skills and the creation of spontaneous compositions. Participants will learn how to collate musical ideas, layer parts, sing in tune, achieve vocal blend and keep good time using a variety of tonalities, meters and  stylistic grooves. 
NOTE: For each of the five scheduled SUNDAY creative vocal ensemble rehearsals we are offering a special vocal technique workshop PLUS repertoire review session with the leadership of Stefania Patene. Singers not enrolled in the certificate program should arrive at 5:00 on Sunday ready to sing. Stefania will work with the singers to develop vocal technique and musical security. Bob will join the ensemble at 6:15 with the certificate program singers and rehearsal will continue under Bob's direction until 9:30. A great night of singing!!  Note the special schedule for the culminating concert weekend.
This ensemble will culminate in a live performance. Learn more
