OLLI at FAU Glee Club: Let Us Sing!

Monica Berovides-Hildago

Course Description

Let Us Sing! Invites one and all! If you love to sing, this is the class for you! Reading music is not required. Our new musical director, Monica Berovides-Hidalgo, has put together this exciting and eclectic program ranging from Broadway show tunes to 50’s hits and even some choral classics! Enjoy singing in an ensemble while learning vocal and choral techniques through each score and bringing the music to life one note at a time! Each session will include vocal warm-ups, choral singing, and vocal techniques through repertoire. Participants are active members who make new pathways in their musical brain and give back by sharing their music and joy in a final concert that follows the eight-week rehearsal sessions. Participants do not need to register for the March 15th one-time concert. Space is limited.
