Signed my job contract with Pittsfield Public Schools today! Will be teaching K-5 general music for the next school year! Very excited!
Change in Leadership
Patrick and I would would like to say how much we have enjoyed singing with all of you this past semester. In case you missed the message, Patrick and I will be co-leading the group next semester; Saunder has graduated. We'd still like to continue with what Tenuto is known for, concentrating on 20th and 21st century pieces and student compositions. Rehearsals will remain on Mondays and Fridays at 6-8pm. If you are interested in joining next semester, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2014 CALL FOR SCORES
A shout out to all Berklee composers and choral writers out there: here are the guideline for our Spring 2014 Call for scores!
If chosen, your music will be premiered, performed and recorded on the 23rd of April, at Old South Church!
Looking forward to your scores!
I'm proud to announce that I will be working as a student teacher at the Thoreau School in Concord, MA and Arlington High School in Arlington, MA from now until May. General music classes at the elementary level, and choral classes at the high school level! I have been blessed with amazing students!
Once again, it's near the end of semester. That means a concert. This semester, am I still singing with the Tenuto Chamber Singers.
The Tenuto Chamber Singers proudly presents "Anima: A journey to the soul," the group's Spring 2013 concert.
The concert will feature music of sacred or inspired text. Some featured composers are Eriks Esenvalds, Francisco Feliciano, Rheinberger, Tallis and more!
We will also premiere 5 works by Berklee student composers, selected through our Spring 2013 call for scores:
"Requiem: Introit" by Patrick Hoagland
"Stabat Mater" by Michal Weiner
"Quiquid... pulchrum" by Sam Mchale
"Gloria" by Juan Garcia Illanas
"Miserere Nobis" by Dante Obe-Ibe
The concert will feature a 6-piece sax choir that will accompany us in one of the student pieces. We will also be playing with handbells, tuned water glasses, etc. Fun stuff!
A portion of the concert will also be dedicated to the senseless tragedy that happened at the Boston Marathon.
Hope all of you can join us!
