Celtic Harp and Song Workshop

Celtic Harp and Song Workshop Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

We'll cover all your favorite aspects of singing with the instrument from arrangements to song choice. Singing with the harp, or accompanying yourself singing is very different from playing solo pieces or from accompanying other musicians or singers.


Naturally it calls for a different approach. This workshop will serve to look at the unique aspects of self accompaniment and keeping it simple.


We'll focus on old beautiful airs from the tradition that are very suitable for meditative music. Interestingly many of them were written on or widely played by the harpers of old.


We'll also touch on combining your personal meditation practice and how to carry that forward into playing for others.


This workshop is also suitable for healing practitioners who play at the bedside.


If there's any more beautiful music in the world than Irish and Celtic airs, I've yet to hear it. We'll dig into the deepest treasures of the tradition by unearthing Ireland and Scotland's most beautiful airs. For me, there's no greater joy than playing airs that were written for the harp, often by harpers and I can't wait to share that with you!


This is the music a harpist can really make his or her own through self-expression and it's the best way I know to find your true harp "voice."

Piano Music from Four Continents

Piano Music from Four Continents
Description:

Composer and pianist, Keane Southard, will perform a recital entitled “Piano Music from Four Continents” on Saturday, June 2nd, 1pm at the First Congregational Church in Thetford, VT (2596 Route 113). Southard served as the organist and pianist at the church last year.

The program will include piano works from India, Brazil, England, and the USA by composers John Foulds, Camargo Guarnieri, and Southard himself. Admission is free although donations will be accepted.

As a pianist, Southard is committed to the performance of unknown and underperformed works and composers. “The piano repertoire is so vast,” says Southard, “that there are many wonderful pieces that haven't made it into the standard repertoire yet deserve to be more well known. For the audience, it is a bit of a risk coming to a recital where you may not recognize the pieces or composers, but my hope is that people will walk out of the concert wanting to further explore these composers.” Additionally, Southard's recitals include spoken insights, personal connections, and stories about the music and their composers to create an engaging and informal concert experience.

Southard has performed as a solo pianist across the country, including at conferences and festivals in Colorado, Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri and as an accompanist with the Springfield Community Chorus and the Bennington County Choral Society. He has performed as a soloist in his own “Classical” Concerto with the Sounds of Stow Orchestra, and in his Concertino with the Northeastern State University Wind Ensemble. As a composer, he has been the recipient of many awards, including the 2016 Colorado State Music Teachers Association Commissioned Composer Award, and 3rd prize in the Belvedere Festival Composition Contest, and recently had his Appalachian Trail Symphony: New England premiered in Bennington and featured on Vermont Public Radio. He was a Fulbright scholar studying music education in Brazil, has taught at Bennington College, and holds a Masters degree in composition from the University of Colorado-Boulder. He will begin work on his PhD in music composition at the Eastman School of Music in the fall.

Time: 6/2/18 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Location: First Congregational Church, Thetford
