Section Title

Arranging Concepts for the Contemporary Ensemble and Choir

Artist: Mattingly, Joe
Description: Our ensembles and choirs rarely fit neatly the performance suggestions of much of the liturgical music available. This workshop will deal with the practical issues involved with the arranging of the liturgical music of today. Issues such as arranging philosophies, models, and styles; arranging and the composer’s ‘intent’; contemporary choir ‘sound’, arranging concepts and the flow of the liturgy. Examples, discussion, Q & A, and an interactive, live ‘group arrangement.’
