Join us for a captivating three-day workshop where we will delve into the rich tapestry of history, context, and performance practice of the Spiritual. From the roots of slavery through the 21st century, we’ll uncover the deeper meanings woven into each song. We will unlock the secrets of various styles; from their origins before the Civil War to their transformation over the years.
  
This immersive experience will resonate with your soul and elevate your understanding of these timeless musical treasures. Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with the heart and soul of African American Spirituals in this transformative journey through sound and history. 

Anthony Trecek-King has earned recognition worldwide for his expertise and passion in this area. As a believer in teaching skills, not just songs, Anthony will weave singing technique, expressive skills and historical context into workshop sessions for a truly fascinating and engrossing experience. 
 

The fee will cover the cost of music, festival accreditation, light refreshments, opportunities to network with like-minded choristers and specially negotiated accommodation rates. This is a unique opportunity to work with one of America’s leading choral specialists and music historian. 
 

This is a workshop suitable for anyone who has an interest in delving into the historical significance and context of the music they enjoy. 

At least a basic level of music reading is needed to fully embrace this experience.
