Charles Cole will direct the women’s Refresher chant course this summer at the XXIV Colloquium in Indianapolis. An accomplished organist and choral director, he comes to us from the London Oratory (often referred to as “the Brompton Oratory” because of its location in London). In addition to the chant course, Cole will offer two breakout sessions: the first on conducting technique and the second on organ accompaniment for the chants of the New English Missal.
We welcome Dr. Paul Weber who will teach the Refresher Men’s chant course at the CMAA Summer Colloquium this year, as well as offering a breakout presentation on “Conducting from the Console” in the organ series.
He will also be the organist for the Solemn Extraordinary Form Mass of the Visitation on Wednesday, July 2nd at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.
Wilko Brouwers of the Netherlands will conduct one of the polyphonic choirs at XXIV CMAA Summer Colloquium in Indianapolis, as well as present a conducting breakout session entitled “How Does the Maestro Move?” He has taught both chant and polyphony at the CMAA Colloquia since 2004. This year the central work of his choir will be the Manuel Cardoso Missa de beata virgine from the Golden Age of Portuguese Polyphony. There will also be motets by composers as diverse as Grieg and Wadsworth.
