Ready, Set, Sing - A Class with Christopher Fritzsche


Seasons Greetings!


I'm writing to let you know that I'll once again be teaching a round of my group singing class, Ready Set Sing on Tuesdays in January. Below you will find a link to read more about the class and sign up if you'd like to. I do limit the class to 18 so you might want to sign up soon as it does fill up.

Also - I get requests for private lessons and although I don't have time in my schedule to teach regular weekly lessons, for those who would like a private lesson I am offering a 1 hour lesson at the cost of $75 in addition to the class registration fee for those who sign up and take this January's class.



Here is the link for the class:






Happy Singing to you!!

THE FESTIVAL CONSORT PRESENTS RENAISSANCE GLORY

Greetings,

Just a quick note to let you know that I will once again be singing with Carol Menke and the Festival Consort for our annual Christmas Concert. The concert will again take place in January as we've found that it's a more relaxed time for (and still feels "wintery" enough to enjoy) a holiday concert.

THE FESTIVAL CONSORT PRESENTS RENAISSANCE GLORY

Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 4PM

Church of the Incarnation, 550 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa 95401

Ye Sacred Muses: Choral Music from the Chapel Royal.



Greetings -

It isn't often that the a cappella vocal ensemble I sing with, Clerestory, comes north of the Golden Gate so I'm pleased and excited to let you know that this Friday evening we will be performing a concert right here in Santa Rosa! The concert is called "Ye Sacred Muses" and we just performed it in the Bay Area - and even sold out the chapel in SF's beautiful Grace Cathedral. If you buy tickets ahead of time you get $5 off the "at the door" price.
I hope to see you there,
Chris

Date:  Friday, September 30
Time:  7:30pm to 9pm

Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa
2075 Occidental Road

Ye Sacred Muses: Choral Music from the Chapel Royal. The Chapel Royal was for centuries the seat of British sacred music-making, and the ensemble will perform lesser-known a cappella works by Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and others. They will also highlight the madrigal compilation, The Triumphs of Oriana — a tribute to Queen Elizabeth I — and its 20th-century companion, A Garland for the Queen, which commemorates the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II with contributions by Vaughan Williams, Finzi, Tippett and others.




Clerestory begins its eleventh season with Ye Sacred Muses: Choral Music from the Chapel Royal. The Chapel Royal was for centuries the seat of British sacred music-making, and the ensemble will perform lesser-known a cappella works by Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and others.

Opening Concert of the Sonoma Bach Season at the Green Music Center Schroder Hall

It's time for the opening concert of the Sonoma Bach season, and I get to perform with them. 

I love the opportunity to sing with Live Oak Orchestra, not only because it's wonderful to sing with an orchestra, but because I get to sing madrigals. 

We are turning some madrigals into solo pieces, turning them into a whole different experience, highlighting the text and giving me the opportunity to be more expressive and flexible. 

The pieces by Banchiri are comedic, elegant, and fascinating.  Other composers featured will be Thomas Morely, Johann Hermann Schein and Mateo Flecha the Younger. 

I look forward to seeing you there.  where?  The Green Music Center, Schroder Recital Hall.

Tickets are available online by clicking here.

More information about the opening recital is available here.
