The Cecilia Chorus Of New York Presents Their Music Director Mark Shapiro Leading FRENCH STAYCATION

In the seventh episode of their free, online series, The Cecilia Chorus of New York presents their Music Director Mark Shapiro, an internationally recognized teacher, leading a Zoom French Staycation, a Singposium on November 23 @ 7:30 PM EDT. The event is open to everyone.

Mark Shapiro says about the program, "Our whirlwind musical tour of France spans two centuries and illuminates the aspects of technique and style that make that country's music so quintessentially French, with its distinctive qualities of refinement, transparency, and self-assuredness."

The Maestro will discuss an excerpt from Midnight Mass by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, "Les fleurs et les arbres" by Camille Saint-Saëns and "Cantique de Jean Racine" by Gabriel Fauré, and lead singalongs of all three works.

The event is free. Register for the program at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUkd-2srj4uG9Y11ETAsc0NkgzHJO6eWcd8.

The New York Times has characterized his conducting as "insightful" and acknowledged its "virtuosity and assurance," and "uncommon polish."
