Vogt to conduct Blue Hill Bach rehearsals, Ellsworth American reports

The Ellsworth American reported on Blue Hill Bach, a free vocal and choral training program for young people in grades 8 through 12. Participants began working June 10 with voice teachers and conductors on a weekly basis to learn four-part chorales from Johann Sebastian Bach’s “St. John Passion,” according to the report. The works will be performed as part of the annual Blue Hill Bach Festival in July. Francis John Vogt, director of choral programs at the University of Maine, will conduct rehearsals, the article states.
