Ukrainian Polyphonic Singing

with Nadia Tarnawsky (Seattle)

Using folk songs from a variety of regions from Ukraine (and maybe some other countries, too!), Nadia will lead participants through a series of exercises to help them find a healthy way to produce their folk sound.  In singing, the entire body is the instrument, so focus will be placed on accessing resonance throughout the body to help support the singing.  In addition to healthy singing, the historical context of the songs will be presented as well as working with ornamentation and styles specific to the genre.  Ability to read Cyrillic or musical notation is not required and all are welcome!
