Led by ESYO Music Director Etienne Abelin, you will learn how to soundpaint in this fun workshop for beginners! Soundpainting is an improvisation and instant composition sign language that allows for musicians to interact with each other and develop their artistic expressivity in a spontaneous and fun way. Soundpainting connects music with movement using more than 1500 gestures to compose music live, at the moment, with other musicians, dancers, actors and visual artists. The gestures allow musicians to communicate musical ideas with each other while embodying the music they are creating. This workshop is geared toward students 12 and up; local music teachers are also welcome to attend. Bring your instrument!
At ESYO's Summer Sessions, you'll study your instrument with professional chamber musicians, learn new skills, enjoy the great outdoors, and make new friends before rehearsals begin.
Sign up for one or more sessions and get a jump start on the 2023-2024 season. Bring your friends! Many of the ESYO Summer Sessions are open to non-ESYO members.
