Erasmia Voukelatos, clinician.
Greece! A magical place known for its bold colors and breezy shores, turquoise seas and ancient monuments, succulent figs, fragrant jasmines, and a beautiful musical culture rich with nostalgia, spirit, and joy. Join Erasmia Voukelatos on a tour of her beloved birthplace, as she shares gems from the roots of her Greek identity, through the lens of a first-generation immigrant growing up in Canada and living in the US. We will sing, dance and play through time and across shifting borders, from bustling port neighborhoods of Athens, past mountain splendors, and around sunkissed islands, along with a few detours beyond the border. This workshop will contain music materials adaptable for elementary, middle school, high school and community chorus.
Canadian pianist of Greek descent, Erasmia Voukelatos is active as a soloist and chamber musician, educator, conductor, choral arranger, lecturer and concert series presenter. A dedicated educator for over 25 years, Ms. Voukelatos is currently Director of Choral Music and Lower School Music Teacher at Far Brook School in Short Hills, New Jersey. Erasmia is Executive Director of My Music Garden, a program serving young people in Jersey City.
The workshop is being presented in-person in Berkman Auditorium, Hartt School of Music, West Hartford, CT and can also be viewed via ZOOM attendance. Zoom address & code will be sent the day before the workshop to the email address used when registering.
