Though there is no dearth for singers in our church choirs yet they lack basic training in singing. Though they have skills yet they have no opportunities to learn the basics of choral singing. To fill this gap the Carmelites from Carmel Ashram, Katkere, Koteshwar organized a seminar on Basic Training Skills for Choral Singing. Sangeeth Maestro Joel Pereira, Bejai was the resource person. The training was held on Sunday 7th of November, 2021from 10am to 4pm at Divine Mercy Hall, Carmel Ashram. Around 75 singers from the Kundapur deanery participated and benefited from this seminar. Training included: Introduction to basic music; basics of choral singing; basics of voices and its complexity and rending, classification of voices, singing in parts, Gregorian and Polyphonic singing, taking care of vocals and basic exercises in singing. Earlier Rev. Fr. Stany Tauro the Dean of Kundapur Deanery lighted the lamp and inaugurated the seminar. In his introductory speech, he said that ‘the one who sings not only prays twice but also helps the congregation to pray twice, therefore it’s imperative that all the choir members should have some knowledge about liturgical choir. Liturgical choir is not a performance rather it plays a facilitating function in animating the liturgy’. He wished well to the resource person and the participants. Fr. Alwyn Sequeira welcomed the gathering and introduced the speaker and Fr. Francis Bartholomio took care of the logistics. Congratulations to the community of Carmel Ashram for their innovative ministry in Koteshwar.
