Chicago Hilton downtown, grand ballroom
Got Choralography?
P0 Box 8566
Los Angeles CA 90008 US (PST)

Featuring choralographer, Yvonne Farrow and composer/arranger Larry Farrow, this session will demystify the use of movement for classic concert choral compositions. Choral directors will vocally review the section of the octavo that will be used for movement with Larry, learn the choralography with Yvonne and then perform it! This is a perfect introduction to choralography for the choral director who desires visual enhancement of their concert choral programming or wants to create new possibilities for their choir. To best prepare for the session, download and memorize the excerpt and MP3 file, Who’ll Be A Witness, provided by Play My Piano Music at or click here for handouts.

- YVONNE FARROW has been specializing in choralography of concert choral works specifically designed for classically trained choirs for almost 20 years. She is also a dramatic coach employing theater and lighting design to choral performance as an extension of her vision. She is a member of ACDA and Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, working with choirs from middle school to the professional. Her choral ballets have been performed around the world and have contributed to top awards won by The Choral Project, Daniel Hughes, Director, at the California International Choral Festival & Competition; and The Northridge Singers, Paul Smith, Director, at International Eisteddfod, in Wales. Most recently she re-set War Song 9.0 for University of Delaware Chorale, that competed in the 42nd Annual Choral Festival, Tolosa, Spain.

- LARRY FARROW is an American composer/songwriter whose first mentor was Jester Hairston. A former Florida State University professor, named on the ‘A List of American Composers and Arrangers’ by the ACDA National Repertoire and Standards Committee, Farrow is best known for his octavo, Jamaican Market Place. Traditional guidance from Hairston and contemporary training from Margret Bonds lead to concert pieces: Spiritual Roots, a suite for chorus and orchestra premiered by the Los Angeles Philharmonic; Who’ll Be a Witness, performed at the Plymouth Music Series; and A Star in the East, a collage of African-American Christmas Spirituals. Farrow composed Fanfare for the Caregivers, a Memorial Day tribute broadcast live from our nation’s capital, performed by Tony Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell and the National Symphony Orchestra.
