Mastic Beach, NY - May 28, 2014 -  Members of the William Floyd High School Concert Choir recently had the opportunity to work with Dr. David Fryling, Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Hofstra University, on a special choir clinic in which they reviewed two of their most challenging competition pieces, “Desh” an Indian raga and “Amor De Mi Alma,” a Spanish love poem.

In “Desh,” William Floyd High School chorus teacher Barbara D’Orio explained that Dr. Fryling helped the students reproduce the different sounds of tabla drums vocally; and in “Amor,” he helped them connect with the true meaning of the poem by having them delve deeper into its intent, which was the composer’s inability to verbalize his feelings toward the object of his affection and then using compositional devices to share his feelings.

“Working with a university choral director helps students make a deeper connection to the music and its cultural background,” said Ms. D’Orio. “Dr. Fryling’s energy and enthusiasm really took them to the next level of artistry.”
