The event creator says
Matt Meyer is an artist of percussion, knowledgeable and experienced in a variety of styles, including latin-jazz, Brazilian, folk, funk, Hiphop and pop. He is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and has studied in Cuba, Ghana, and Central America.

A love of music and a deep respect for its ability to stir and transform audiences is at the heart of Matt's continuing devotion to understand more of the world's cultures through the vocabulary of rhythm.

Rhythm for Choir - Saturday, May 2nd from 2-4 pm at UUCA
Rhythm for Choir is an energetic, fully participatory workshop designed to help choirs better understand rhythm in the mind, body, and spirit. With Matt’s guidance, the choir will explore the theories and practices of West African, South Indian and European perspectives on rhythm. Using song, body percussion and a few instruments to help us out, participants gain a more holistic comprehension of rhythm’s function in the brain, as well as in the body.

After venturing into odd time signatures, syncopation, and polyrhythms we’ll come back home to the repertoire at hand with a newfound confidence and depth of understanding. Rhythm for Choir is an essential workshop for any chorus looking to explore world music or just to improve their accuracy and feel for reading the notes on the page.

Moving Music Forward - Saturday, May 2nd from 11am-1pm at UUCA

Music has the ability to engage our hearts and bodies together in an integrated worship experience. We invite choir members, ministers, lay worship leaders, and musicians to dive into the theory and specific techniques for creating a transformative music experience.

We'll look for ways to introduce new music, set the context and tone of worship, and repurpose the role of musicians and choir members. Together, we’ll explore new musical elements of worship that engage the congregation and deepen our connections with one other.
