CRESCENDO’S COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION
Education is a core part of Crescendo’s mission and its programming. We have offered programs for young musicians – both for instrumentalists, and for singers. Our most recent program, the “Young Baroque Artists” in 2017 featured four extraordinarily talented teenage singers alongside four professional singers. The young singers received individual coaching for a complete academic year. Chorus rehearsals include detailed analysis of the works and their historical context. The Artistic Director gives talks in our communities about upcoming concerts and other musical subjects. The illustrated concert programs help place the music within the context of art and social history and include the complete text of vocal music in both English and original language.
