Choral Studies at Augsburg University
Global Harmony Class – today’s class taught by Emma Björling (Sweden) and Polina Shepherd
Students in this course join once a week with Augsburg’s other choirs and with community partners to form the Augsburg/Twin Cities Global Harmony Choir. In this project we learn community vocal-harmony traditions from a wide variety of cultures. Instruction is given directly by culture-bearers, Zooming to us from several continents. This year’s area studies will include music from: Appalachia, Black gospel communities, Madagascar, Black South Africa, Sweden, Yiddish-speaking Russia, Muslim Bosnia, and the Republic of Georgia. Members will perform in live community events and for the annual observation of Augsburg’s Advent Vespers program. No music-reading ability is required; all material will be offered orally. In some cases, scores in various notational systems will also be available.
