‘Song of America’ Educator Workshop on Dec. 5, 2015 in Ann Arbor, Michigan
By Song of America
The internationally renowned operatic baritone Thomas Hampson explores the power of classic American songs as the gateway for a richer knowledge of the cultures, languages, peoples, and events that have shaped American life.
The workshop will include a full complement of activities: sessions exploring both content and pedagogical strategies, a conversation with Hampson about his passion for telling the story of history and culture through classic song, and a special live performance focusing on songs related to the material covered in the workshop. The live performance will be a video conference between the University of Michigan and Manhattan School of Music, and will be available online via live-stream to view around the world.
This workshop is ideal for Language Arts, History, Social Studies, and Performing Arts teachers.
