Berkshire Choral Festival

October 26th, 2010

From Chorister Grace:  The Berkshire Choral Festival has opened its online applications for the 2011 summer season.  The web site is  The 2011 season includes one week in Vancouver, June 15-23, performing Voices of Light with the Anonymous 4 and conductor Tom Hall; 4 consecutive one-week sessions in Sheffield, Massachusetts, starting July 10th and including Mendelssohn’s Elijah and the Monteverdi Vespers and conductors such as Robert Page and Kent Tritle; and one week in Salzburg, Austria, September 9-18, performing Haydn, Mendelssohn and Brucker with conductor Thomas Bottcher.  An audition CD is required for the Monteverdi week.  Music and rehearsal CDs are sent out in the spring and the one week session is spent on polishing the nuances.  Choristers have most afternoons free to sight-see in the local area, with rehearsals scheduled in the morning and evening.  BCF also offers opportunities for scholarships as well as apprenticeships for those studying for degrees (undergraduate or graduate) in music.
