A5883: Singing Stories in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 22 - 23, 2017)
Join members of Stanford Talisman to talk about music and storytelling, and learn a song together. Stanford Talisman is a singing group that aims to share world music that tells stories. In this session, students will start by joining Talisman members in a vocal warm up. Understanding the origin of the music we sing is very important to the group, so we will begin by talking about the history of the song and how the song is used in its original setting. Once we understand this context, we will learn the piece in vocal parts (basses, tenors, altos, sopranos), learning more about the technicalities of good singing. As a big finale, we will sing the song altogether and Talisman will do a mini performance of some of our other selections. We hope students walk away with a greater appreciation for world music, collective singing and sharing stories.
