Brahms Symposium: Open to the Public
Choral Arts and the University of Washington present a day-long symposium and master classes on Saturday, March 29, 2014.
Lectures are open to the public however, the two master classes are closed. Those wishing to audit the master classes for a $30 fee must register in advance.
What are the Symposium and Master Classes about?
Investigation of how Brahms wished his most famous choral work Ein deutsches Requiem to be performed is a recent endeavor. This symposium will explore the performance practices that Brahms employed when playing his chamber music and consider how they might be applied to the Requiem. We will also consider the recollections of Brahms's performances of this masterpiece left to us by the choral conductor Siegfried Ochs.
Four conducting fellows were chosen through a competitive application process to participate in the March 29 Brahms Symposium and Master Classes. Congratulation to:
David Farwig, University of Missouri at Kansas City
Danielle Warner, University of Missouri at Kansas City
Johann van Niekirk, University of Washington
Christopher Nickelson-Mann, Michigan State University
Conducting fellows will work with Choral Arts' Conductor & University of Missouri at Kansas City Director of Choral Activities Dr. Robert Bode, University of Washington Director of Choral Activities Dr. Geoffrey Boers, and University of Washington professor and Brahms scholar Dr. George Bozarth.
