A two day series on starting your own group and then arranging music from a local expert in the field of a cappella. Are you looking to start a singing group but do not know how? Do you need some songs to sing? How about wanting to give your group some extra kick in your musical arrangements? Does your group currently do stock arrangements – how would you like to cater them to your group’s strengths? A beginner’s knowledge of music reading and theory is highly recommended for this series. Students must be at least entering the eighth grade to enroll.

Music educator and choral director, Jamie Saucier, M.M., has over 15 years of experience singing in, arranging for, and starting a cappella groups. From middle schools to college to community and from all female to coed to male groups, Jamie has directed all types of groups imaginable. As the coordinator of Voices of the (603) http://www.voicesofthe603.com , an a cappella festival for the entire state of New Hampshire, Jamie might even choose your arrangement to be featured by the groups this year.
