Oxford Choral Institute/Chant Studies

This summer, Westminster Choir College is continuing a new, international choral conducting program in a unique partnership with Oxford University called the Choral Music Institute at Oxford. The program will be taught by an internationally acclaimed faculty from both Westminster and Oxford University. As part of the choral education and residential experience, the choral ensemble in residence will be exposed to and learn from international conducting faculty and students at one of the most acclaimed Universities in the world. All program attendees will be immersed in a culturally rich choral music environment introducing them to a 600-year history of sacred music. As a member of the choir and member of this program, my education will be immeasurably deepened by the incredible opportunities offered by this program.


Hello everyone!

As a member of the choir Williamson Voices, I have the wonderful opportunity this summer to travel to Oxford, England, July 7-17 to participate in the Choral Institute described above.  It will be an incomparable experience in developing my musical studies. The video above is from the Grammy-nominated recording that Williamson Voices made of James Whitbourn's Annelies - The First Major Choral Setting of the Diary of Anne Frank.  We performed it on April 26 at Alice Tully Hall in New York and we will be performing it again at Oxford University.

After the Choral Institute, I will be traveling to Tours, France, where I will study Gregorian Chant with Dom. Daniel Saulnier OSB (from Solesmes!).  He has written numerous books on chant and is one of the world's leading chant scholars. 

My goal is to raise $2,000 to pay for all of the expenses. The  admission and room/board for the Choral Institute at Oxford is taken care of through the school, but I am paying for the plane tickets, train rides, the Chant studies, food, and lodgings while I am in France. Anything that you can give to help make my plans a reality would be appreciated. Please keep my travels in your prayers.

God bless,
Peter
