The Pennsic Choir
Welcome to the Known World Choir at Pennsic, also known as the Pennsic Choir!
This year the Choir will be directed by Master Robyn Solarius. A Music Laurel from the Midrealm,
this is his second time directing the Choir. Master Robyn has had a long love affair with Early Music, and wide experience both performing and directing.
The Known World Choir (KWC) is a group of people from across the Kingdoms of the SCA who love to sing a cappella
choral music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Singers gather, rehearse and perform at major SCA wars like
Estrella, Lilies, and Pennsic. To stayed informed about the activities of the Known World Choir, and to access the
music for the Pennsic Choir, join our What is the Known World Choir? Yahoo Group.
(You must have or sign up for a free Yahoo ID to join this online email list.)
Singing in the Pennsic Choir is an intense and rewarding experience. We rehearse 2 hours each day for a week,
then perform a concert on the final Thursday of War week.
You donít need to be an expert musician to sing in the Pennsic Choir, but you should be able to carry a tune
(preferably without a bucket!) and maintain a rhythm. The ability to read music and sight-sing is extremely
helpful, but not required if you are willing to put in the effort to learn the music in advance. To facilitate
this, the music for Pennsic 41
will be available online in MIDI format as well as PDF from the Known World Choir Yahoo Group webpage
Known World Choir Yahoo Group webpage or by
postal mail from the director. We plan to make sung MP3s available as well.
It also helps to attend as many rehearsals as possible.
