Yale's "Baker's Dozen" Performs and Teaches at Saint David's

On Friday morning, the Baker's Dozen, an a cappella singing group from Yale University, visited Saint David's.

The group engaged our Chamber Singers in a Master Class that included several new vocal warm-ups and also discussed their interest in singing with the boys. Afterward, they separated into four vocal groups--soprano, alto, tenor, and bass--and taught the boys a song in four-part harmony (see video clip, below).

The performance for the Upper School was fantastic, and included a rendition of "Hey Bulldog" with fourth grader Casimir M. in a featured role. The Baker's Dozen visit was a sweet treat for us at Saint David's, and a great start to the day.
