OLLI is joining with Abendmusik to enhance the experience of their annual community Summer Sing. This year features Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria!”
On Wednesday, July 12, OLLI members will have an exclusive lesson with Pamela Starr, UNL professor of Music History. The lesson will include a history of Vivaldi and his “Gloria,” along with some musical analysis, followed by a rehearsal of sections of the Vivaldi piece.
Then, on Wednesday, July 19, Pamela Starr and Tom Trenney, artistic director of Abendmusik and First-Plymouth Church’s minister of music, will share in a pre-Summer Sing reception with an exclusive question and answer period about the “Gloria,” Abendmusik and the Summer Sing. After a short break, OLLI members will join dozens of fellow music and singing enthusiasts in the community to share an energized rehearsal and the “instant performance.”
There are no auditions or extensive commitments. Just come ready to sing! Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you join your voice with many others to create beautiful sound. Let Abendmusik cure your summertime choral blues!
Music will be provided at the July 19th Summer Sing rehearsal and performance, but OLLI members are encouraged to purchase the score prior to the July 12 class. Scores are available at Dietze Music at the discounted price of $8.00 (tax included). To get your copy, call Dietze and mention you are an OLLI member taking the Abendmusik class on Vivaldi’s “Gloria.”
