Concert Choir & Catamount Singers
"Play" is a common term used to refer to the ways musicians make music- ie, we ¿play¿ music- but we sometimes lose sight (especially as adults) of what it really means to play in and through music. Playfulness and play theory in education have been characterized by qualities of exploration, experimentation, imagination, spontaneity, "rules of the game", independence, collaboration, and interaction. This semester, the UVM Concert Choir and Catamount Singers explored elements of play in music - how composers play with musical dimensions to create new musical ideas, how singers bring a playful approach to rehearsing and performing, as well as a playfulness in interpretation of ideas, traditions, and formal musical structures. The idea of play can also be used in a more abstract sense to personify various aspects of the natural world or as a tool to overcome pain or loss.
Our November 15th concert is an opportunity to share in this musical experience. Additionally we will be joined by 30 young singers from Elementary and Middle Schools around Vermont!
Conducted by Andrea Maas and Stefanie Weigand. Free and open to the public. (Note new start time of 7:00, not 7:30)
