Come get your Choral Vitamin B-12 shot this summer! We are thrilled to be bringing in the extraordinary Dr. Tim Seelig to spend the day doing just that for New Mexico ACDA. Dr. Seelig will equip us with brand new tools, tricks and techniques to make starting the year a joy. He will be highlighting some of his books with sessions he has been presenting all over the country – right here, for us.
Here are some ‘nuggets’ for what the workshop will include:
- Nutrition for the Voice and Soul: – Creative and Effective Warm-UPs
- Reading Session – Heinz75 – A Variety
- Rehearsal Blues and Blahs – Perk it Up
- Reading Session – TLC: Tear, Laugh, Chill Bump
- Things They Forgot to Tell You or Were Afraid You’d Find Out
- The Music Within – Inspiration to Go
Tim Seelig is conductor, singer, teacher and motivational speaker. In addition to being the Artistic Director of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, he continues a busy guest-conducting schedule. He is Conductor Emeritus of the Turtle Creek Chorale, which he conducted for 20 years.
Dr. Seelig holds four degrees, including the Doctor of Musical Arts and the Diploma from the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. He has authored seven books and DVDs on choral technique.
His recordings have been on Billboard Top Ten and iTunes Top Ten classical charts. The PBS documentary about the TCC received the national Emmy award for best documentary. Dr. Seelig’s first career was as a singer: European operatic debut at the Staatsoper in St. Gallen, Switzerland; solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall; and world premieres of composers including John Corigliano, Conrad Susa and Peter Schickele (P.D.Q. Bach).
Grammy Magazine says, “Dr. Seelig takes eclecticism to new heights.” Fanfare Magazine says he raises singers from “the ranks of amateur choir to one receiving wide recognition for excellent performances.” The New York Times calls Seelig an “expressive performer,” and the Fort Worth Star Telegram quips, “Seelig slices a thick cut of ham.”
