Session of choral singing

Friday Afternoon

Anne HEIDER

Choral Conductor and Professor of Music

Chicago College of Performing Arts, Roosevelt University

As a corollary to Steve Warner’s and Anne Heider’s paper on the resurgence of traditional shape note singing in the U.S., part of the session “Bodies, Emotions, and Religious Experience,” Anne Heider will lead a 90-minute experiential session for anyone and everyone who likes to sing. No special expertise is necessary! She will teach simple songs and rounds from a variety of traditions, including American shape note hymnody, offering participants the opportunity to sing together, to move while singing, to sing while listening, and to listen while moving. The purpose is to provide first-hand, direct experience of the extraordinary embodied power of even very simple music, when it is sung in groups.
