Advanced Study with Alice Parker
Seminars are a new offering from Melodious Accord for individual or small group study with Alice Parker. To set up a Seminar, the applicant discusses with Ms. Parker a possible date for 2-4 days of study, and the preferred focus: composition, conducting, score study, song leading, church music, teaching, or another special interest. When the date is set, the applicant or Ms. Parker may add students to that Seminar; four is an optimal class size.
Seminars meet for three hours daily, usually at Ms. Parker's home in Hawley, Massachusetts. Fees will be set as groups are formed. Meals are not included; information about nearby housing is available on request.
Please note: Due to the pandemic, we will not be holding this program in NYC as usual in 2021. We may offer a remote alternative; Stay tuned for more information!

In the evenings explore theater, opera, museums, Broadway shows, or restaurants. Participants are responsible for making their own housing arrangements.
