Greensboro Slavic Chorus on Mondays

Share article

GREENSBORO – Maria Schumann leads a weekly sing on Mondays, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. through May 1 at the Highland Center for the Arts. Singers will focus on traditional folk songs from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus but will also learn songs from the Baltics, the Balkans, and Georgia. Through melody, harmony, dissonance, rhythm, and images of nature, these ancient songs create a deep experience. Learning is from ear and singing is both in unison and in harmony. Singers may sample some sessions, but will be asked for a commitment to participate fully, as some of the songs are complex and take a long time to learn. Sessions will end with a spring concert. No singing experience is necessary, but ability to sing on tune is required. Singers are asked to take a rapid COVID test before attending.
