UW-Madison Summer Music Clinic - Senior Session

Jasper will be teaching three courses at this summer's senior session (grades 9-12):

Composition/Arranging—Acquire skills that help you creatively combine melody, harmony, and rhythm in your own music. Theory background helpful.

8:00am, M-F

AND

Poetry as Inspiration—Consider how descriptive language informs performance. This course considers how poetry has been set to music and how music has been inspired by the spoken word, and discusses the impact of Bob Dylan’s recent Nobel Prize win. There will also be opportunities to write and read your own poems inspired by specific forms of music.

9:05am & 10:10am, M-F

 

Why Attend the Summer Music Camp? 

Join other junior or high school music students for a week of creative skill-building and performance in band, orchestra, choir, musical theater and jazz ensemble. Concert groups rehearse throughout the week and your family and friends are invited to the final concerts. Classes are designed to help you polish your ensemble and individual performance skills with a variety of music-related topics and techniques. Evening concerts and after-class recreation round out an exciting and dynamic music camp experience. Evening concerts are a mix of guest performing artists, student and faculty recitals. 

Recreation choices for residential campers are upbeat, creative activities led by enthusiastic teams of counselors. Choose from the standard offerings of sports and arts and crafts to aerobics, board games, jam sessions or the hot weather field day that includes nontraditional games such as a water-balloon competition.

World Premiere - Madison Chamber Choir Concert

World Premiere of Dog on the Median of the Kennedy Expressway, Chicago. Commissioned by the Madison Chamber Choir.

Lyrics by Catherine Jagoe

I keep coming back
to the dog
running west
next to the fast lane
along the concrete meridian
between eight
lanes of traffic

and wishing
I could have stopped
although it was impossible
four lanes of us
nose to tail
seventy miles and hour

that dog, thin, grey
loping doggedly along
no Samaritan in sight
nowhere to go but on
