Vallejo Choral Society – Talks on Handel

Vallejo Choral Society - Talks on Handel

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Handel at a Crossroads, by Derek Tam
a unique, interactive online presentation March 3, 7 PM

In 1739, George Frideric Handel was at a crossroads in his career. After almost two decades of success as an opera composer, Handel was on the brink of financial ruin due to rival opera companies and changing tastes among audiences. But Handel had an ace up his sleeve: Oratorio.

Derek Tam, early music specialist and VCS Artistic Director, traces the birth of a new genre, as viewed through one of Handel’s most colorful compositions, Israel in Egypt.

Free and open to the public, the March 3 talk kicks off a unique series of online sessions that are part rehearsal and part music-appreciation course. This series is open to all music lovers everywhere—no singing experience required.

Each Wednesday starting in March, Derek will lead unique, interactive sessions that integrate musicianship, vocal technique, sight-singing, virtual-choir production, and master-class critique. The program will culminate in a live-streamed finale concert on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
