Renaissance Singers Retreat is an Affiliate of the San Francisco Early Music Society. The
Renaissance Singers Retreat brings together Bay Area singers for two weekends each year. We have been singing for 30 years! Check our Repertory List. Directed by Stanford Professor Emeritus William Mahrt, the retreats are held in Albany. This new location has brought in new singers and a good-sized audience!
The next workshop will be in Albany again, March 28-9 .
The repertory of the retreat will be "Propers of the Mass from Dufay to Byrd"
Saturday we meet at the Albany Senior Center.
Sunday we meet at the Cornell Elementary School and perform our concert there at 4pm.
Scholarships are available for younger singers; Contact Us for information.
Professor Mahrt combines intense singing sessions balanced with short lectures on the music and its historical context. A public performance on Sunday at 4 p.m. concludes the workshop. Singers' Retreats are open to all singers with good sight-singing skills. Fees are nominal to cover tuition and materials.
