WCG: Singers' Summer Workshop
The Williamsburg Choral Guild presents Singers' Summer Workshop, two Monday night sessions focused on honing vocal skills: breath support, posture, enunciation/pronunciation, sight-reading, rhythmic accuracy, watching the conductor and being a good choir member.  Anyone who sings with a church choir, community chorus, in a school musical or just for the pure joy of making music will learn from the experts how best the voice can be trained to produce a pleasing -- and the correct -- sound.  Baritone Christopher Mooney, one of the instructors, will provide a relaxed learning environment, and the sessions' outcome will be more confident and skillful singers.  Admission prices are $15 for one session, $20 for both; and the cost includes purchase of Dan Forrest's arrangement of "Be Thou My Vision," which will be used in the lessons.  While attendance at both sessions is encouraged -- the second will build on topics covered on the first night -- participants may attend either one.  For more information, go to www.williamsburgchoralguild.org or call (757) 220-1808.   St. Martin's Episcopal Church, 1333 Jamestown Rd., Williamsburg
