Here you may find video recordings of Bram’s work leading rehearsal and performance. Bram’s two institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Hartford’s Watkinson School and The Ohio State University, restricted choral performance particularly heavily. This, in effect, makes videos from 2019 quite recent. Please check back regularly for more video as Bram returns to the podium!
- Bernstein – Chichester Psalms (upper-division collegiate performers; visiting professional organist)
- Mozart – Overture, The Marriage of Figaro (upper-division collegiate and graduate performers)
- The Musical Rhetoric Workshop (mostly undergraduate and graduate students and young professionals)
Video from Bram's work directly under Kent Tritle is available on a restricted basis. Please contact Bram for details if necessary.
Leonard Bernstein – Chichester Psalms
The OSU Chorale performed Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms under Bram’s direction as his first doctoral recital, on March 10th, 2022. Bram coached the sixty-voice chorus along with instrumentalists from the university's harp and percussion studios; guest artist Raymond Nagem played organ, and Dr. Lee Thompson, rehearsal piano.
Mozart – overture to The Marriage of Figaro
As part of his “rotation” in the Conducting department at Ohio State, Bram began studying under orchestral conductor Miriam Burns and working with the school’s flagship Symphony Orchestra in the fall of 2022. He chose the overture to Figaro for the ensemble's mid-semester concert.
The Musical Rhetoric Workshop
Bram founded the Musical Rhetoric Workshop in the autumn of 2019 as a practicum for musicians to experiment with Baroque methods of musical and dramatic expression and storytelling. The inaugural repertoire was Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas; the workshop continues in 2023 with Carissimi’s Jonah. Most participants are collegiate and graduate students and young professionals. The rehearsal and performance shown here, from the inaugural Workshop, took place the week of November 10th, 2019, at the Watkinson School in Hartford, Connecticut.
