Memorial University and The Singing Network are collaborating with a pair of international music events taking place this summer in St. John’s to offer three graduate courses as part of the 2018 MUN Choral Institute.
The three spring semester courses begin May 7 and are coordinated and facilitated by Dr. Kiera Galway, Dr. David Buley and Dr. Andrea Rose of the Faculty of Education.
Details on how to register for the courses are available online.
The first music event, the International Symposium on Singing and Song II, is scheduled for June 27-28 and the second event, PODIUM on the EDGE: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea, is scheduled for June 29 to July 3.
MUN Choral Institute participants may register for one of the three courses in choral conducting, vocal/choral pedagogy and singing traditions and practices. The courses are offered in a blended format of online components, including readings and discussions, and onsite participation in the International Symposium on Singing and Song II and PODIUM on the EDGE: Singing from Sea to Sea to Sea. Participants will have opportunities to take part in keynote and delegate presentations, workshops, lecture-recitals, master classes, rehearsals, panel workshops and roundtable dialogues, concerts, and social and networking events – and earn graduate credit at the same time.
Final course work will be facilitated via online forum until Aug. 3. Additional course information is available online.
