The Berklee Celtic Vocal Ensemble

Course Number
ENVC-219
Description

This performance-oriented course offers vocalists a unique opportunity to learn and authentically sing the traditional ballads, chanteys, and story-songs of England, Scotland, and Ireland. The class focuses on a cappella solo and choral singing, as well as solo/group vocals accompanied by a four-piece band. Styles covered range from the traditional sounds of the Copper Family and the Watersons to the rock-informed approaches of Pentangle, Steeleye Span, and the Pogues. The course culminates in an intimate-venue concert performance. A sense of humor and a willingness to perform a bit of light acting are required.
