Tapestry offers a choral residency program for high school, college and community programs

A winner of the Echo Klassik for best Choral recording, Tapestry offers a residency program resulting in a concert of medieval and contemporary vocal music. Tapestry will introduce choristers to singing medieval music from original notation and will share their experiences in working with leading composers such as Robert Kyr, Patricia Van Ness, and Steve Reich. The final concert will feature performances by Tapestry, the choir, and the combined forces of Tapestry and choir. In addition, a workshop for percussionists is available as part of the residency. Tapestry will work with faculty and staff to tailor a residency to best suit the needs of the students.


For young audiences: Tapestry's world tour

In this interactive workshop, Tapestry invites their audience on a world tour. The children learn about melody, harmony, rhythm and musical form through songs from Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Spain and Israel. The workshop helps children learn how to listen to music, as well as giving them a taste of several foreign languages. The children's participation includes singing two-part organum, drones and a canon, distinguishing between duple and triple meter, and joining the ensemble on the refrains of the grand finale.When booked with the concert program, The Spirit takes Flight, the youth outreach program also features Tibetan chant and singing bowls.
