Inside the Music - new offerings!
Zoom “Inside the Music” in this series from the Music School, specially created this year to bring beauty, fun, and musical learning to you!

Together with the String Band Symposium, these two new courses -- Song Club with Jazimina and Musical Theatre through the Ages -- bring you “Inside the Music” with stories, recordings, and illuminating musical demonstrations from these wonderful faculty members. You can sing or play along (the freedom of muted Zoom!) and then join with fellow class members in lively conversation. Enjoy!
Song Club with Jazimina
Like a book club with songs! Come Zoom with Jazimina MacNeil around a treasure trove of songs written by great artists, from Schubert to Amy Beach to Stevie Wonder. Each class we’ll listen to new songs and explore the poetry, musical techniques, and personal history of these poets and composers who capture our kaleidoscope of human feeling and turn it into sound. Each class includes an optional prompt for creative reflection, inviting your own artistic impulses to flow.

Mezzo-soprano Jazimina MacNeil has spent most of her life reveling in song and loves nothing more than delving into the liminal spaces where poetry, history and music intersect. Called “clearly a singer to watch” by the New York Times, her recent performances include concerts with the Apple Hill string quartet, a Verdi Requiem with the Brattleboro Concert Choir, and the Winners Recital of the Liederkranz Competition at Carnegie Hall. She is endlessly thrilled by the process of discovery, and no matter what kind of day her students are having, she wants them to leave their lesson feeling lighter, more energized, and inspired by their own capabilities.

Musical Theatre through the Ages
Join singer and actor Tyler Shore as he explores the history of Musical Theatre, performs representative songs from each era, and demonstrates and explains shifts in vocal technique and style through the decades. You can sing along with Tyler and experiment vocally in the privacy of your home. Tyler provides materials for additional learning and enjoyment between classes.

Tyler Shore blends the sounds of contemporary musical theatre, jazz, golden-age classics, and modern pop styles to bring variety to every event. Tyler is an alumnus of the Concord Community Music School, the proud recipient of a New Hampshire Theatre Award, and a national finalist in the NATS Musical Theatre Competition. Performing on professional stages and venues throughout the Northeast, his goal is to spread the joy and magic of music and theatre to as many people as he can.
