Paul will offer a summer course at the Sorrento Centre, an Anglican Retreat and Conference Centre that offers excellent, intergenerational summer programming. I'm excited to share a course entitled Songs of Transformation, Reformation, and Liberation.
As we look to songs of the past and music of today, what do they have to teach us about the power of music to shape congregational life, especially how we worship? In this interactive course, singers of all backgrounds and skill levels will be invited to experience music from a tapestry of cultures and musical traditions and reflect on:
- community singing as a practice that forms and transforms identity through listening and collaboration;
- holistic practices of music leadership that can help strengthen and liberate voices;
- teaching strategies useful for introducing music in worship, rehearsals, and other community contexts.
