Choral Workshop with Allison Halter

Singing to Sculpture: This workshop offers participants an intimate chance to engage in a sonic dialogue with Gloria Kisch’s sculptures. In this hour long workshop, we will focus on exploring singing first as a group, and then expanding our conversation to include the works on display. Our singing will primarily encompass abstract sound-making, based upon the inherent tones of the sculptures. We will use Pauline Oliveros' practice of Deep Listening to attune ourselves to the space and the objects within it, allowing the frequencies that emerge to guide the composition. The workshop is open to anyone, regardless of singing ability or prior experience.

$40/person
