On tour



Chamber Singers are relaxing at a coffee shop between school visits today.  The coffee shop happens to be directly across the road from the community college where I taught for 10 years.  We are in my hometown of Lee’s Summit.

Word is out about the new choral CD!

A recital

Christine Brewer’s residency in American art song ended today with a recital featuring a bunch of students, and the great lady herself singing some ravishing songs in English.

Over the course of this last week, more than 25 students performed or worked with Christine.  Carole Gaspar, Director of Vocal Studies, and Martha J. Hart, Assistant Professor of Music, arranged a wonderful and meaningful week of song study and performance.

Here are photos from the final recital:

Today’s recital

In the midst of Christine Brewer’s residency this week, we had a wonderful regular Thursday recital today!

Here are some photos from the 30-minute student recital:

Brewer event now scheduled for Tuesday

Because Webster University is closing on Monday, February 16 at 3 p.m., Christine Brewer’s discussion about American art song is postponed.

The kick-off event to her week-long residency will take place on Tuesday, February 17 at 6 p.m. in the recital hall of Thompson Music Building, 8282 Big Bend.  The event will last an hour, and will be followed by a master class with vocal students.  This is a free event.
