Summer Music School Russian Folk Song DAY
No stranger to social singing at weddings and gatherings, Polina Shepherd grew up in a home where songs were frequently sung at table after eating borsht and drinking homemade wine. Come and share the experience: this day-long course will explore folk, lyric and epic songs, ritual songs for pagan holidays, circle dances, wedding songs, weeping songs - all with attention to history and style.
Music lovers of all backgrounds and singing levels are invited, no experience necessary. Teaching by ear.
