Berkshire Chapter AGO Event Year 2022 -2023

Dalcroze workshop for choir and organists – Thomas Parente
Saturday, November 5th, 2022 at 2 pm
The Common Room at Zion 
74 First Street, Pittsfield, MA

Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a complete education involving movement, solfege and piano improvisation. It is particularly exciting and enriching because it both promotes and allows the vital creative aspects of music making to be physically explored, honed and internalized while enhancing the rigor of the musicianship training you and your students will need to become complete musicians.

You will be awakened to the realization that you can hear with greater depth and clarity. Participation in Dalcroze eurhythmics helps you to see your way to a greater understanding of the multiple manners in which music connects to the body.

This class will involve movement so wear clothes conducive to getting up and going!

Audience comments about Renee Louprette and George Stauffer last season

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Renée Louprette organ concert and was thrilled to be able
to meet and chat with the artist and the scholar, Mr. Stauffer, afterwards. This was
my introduction to the BBS, and I will become a member and attend as many concerts
as I can.” —New Audience Member
