"Celtic Otherworld" Song Theme: Faeries, Selkies, and more....

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Whether you are an experienced singer or a beginner, the Celtic Singers' Intensive program is a unique opportunity to work with some of the Celtic world's best vocalists and learn their secrets to being powerful singers and interpreters of Celtic music.  You will expand your repertoire of songs old and new from a number Celtic nations, learn to sing some songs in the original Gaelic, by ear, hence no language skills required. Then we will work with these great singers and teachers to put the package together and present your interpretaion of these songs to an audience, if you wish to.

This year we have chosen to emphasize a theme in the song program: "The Celtic Otherworld". Songs of faeries, selkies, kelpies, beasties, ferrishyn, and goddesses--Come and explore this rich tradition!

The Gaelic Singing Workshop on Thursday afternoon is included in the Celtic Singers' Intensive program.  It is also open to include the public and tickets are recommended to be purchased in advance as space is limited.  If you are not a registered studentclick here to view the Gaelic singing workshop listing and purchase tickets.
