Inland Empire Makes Their Own MusicFest

by katshaver on March 22, 2017 Comments Off on Inland Empire Makes Their Own MusicFest

March 14th was an exciting Tuesday for the Inland Empire Chorus! International Master Faculty member, Queen Kim Vaughn, came to work with us as part of Region 21’s new MusicFest program. Kim used her unparalleled teaching skills to work with us on the basics of the sound category: posture, phonation and resonation. Our members and guests were excited to hear the changes in our sound after working with Kim for the evening. Region 21 is blessed to have such amazing talent right on our doorstep. Huge thanks to Kim and to the entire Region for this great program.

2015 Spring Competition Education Class – Sunday Morning Send-Off!

by Risa Page on April 26, 2015 Comments Off on 2015 Spring Competition Education Class – Sunday Morning Send-Off!

BloodyMaryMimosaA great time was had by the 100+ attendees to our Sunday morning Education Class – Bloody Marys, Mimosas and Score Sheets: What to Do with the Judges Feedback.

Our energetic co-presenters, Jana Gutenson and Kim Vaughn, provided enlightening insight on ways to interpret what Judges wrote and how to turn that into a plan of action as singers and directors return to Quartet and Chorus life. There was something for every performer who crossed the stage and every registered attendee – vocal production tips ‘n tricks, music selection review, chorus and quartet teamwork and so much more!

The overall Judges’ Observations for Choruses and Quartets have been sent via e-mail to our Regional Quartet contacts, Front Line Directors, and Team Coordinators/Presidents. Also sent were the materials to which Jana and Kim referred, SAI Performance Guidelines and Making the Leap (via Sharon Babb), along with more information on Open Division. These documents and more will soon be available on the Education downloads page or contact Risa Page, Education Coordinator at rmt_education@region21.org to receive them.

It was a relaxing way to learn with coffees, lattes, Mimosas, and customized Bloody Marys in hand and next year we are investigating adding some light snacks so plan to come!
