Fearless Audience with Nick Page.
The oral tradition is the original singing tradition, creating communities through song. Nick Page understands the challenges (mostly emotional) of creating great fire with audience sing-alongs. But he also knows the tremendous awards. The workshop will begin with well-known sing-along songs and lead to the use of echo, partner songs, and Bobby McFerrin style circle songs. Nick will show how to create the same level of excellence while bringing out the creativity and sense of community with singers of all ages.

Nick Page is a conductor with extensive experience guest conducting throughout North America and the UK. In the 1980's he was a conductor with the Emmy Award winning Chicago Children's Choir. In 1990 he founded Boston's Mystic Chorale, a unique community chorus that revels in bringing their audience into the singing experience. Nick is also considered by many to be America's greatest song leader, an art form he is keeping alive with his strong sense of compassion and quite a bit of humor. His choral music is published by Boosey & Hawkes, Hal Leonard and several other publishers. He is the author of three books including SING AND SHINE ON, his guide to how to lead songs and his SING WITH US Songbook, a collection of choral arrangements involving audience participation.
