This week long workshop is aimed at incoming high school juniors and seniors and college voice students who wish to enrich their knowledge of diction, vocal technique, movement and interpretive skills, audition preparation and performance arts. Besides daily voice work and coaching with both Peabody Preparatory and Conservatory voice faculty, numerous classes will be offered on such topics as Foreign Language Diction; Audition Preparation, Repertoire and Etiquette; Opera History; Interpretation of Art Song Texts; Yoga for Singers; The Singer as Actor; Breath Support and Resonance; and Vocal Health. All workshop participants will perform in a recital on Friday at 3:00 pm in the Cohen-Davison Family Theatre. Minimum of eight students.
Students are required to bring three pieces memorized and performance ready: an Italian art song or aria (aria before 1800, for high school students); an English art song; and either a German Lied or a French mélodie. Participants also need to bring recital attire and appropriate foot wear.
Please note: out-of-town students under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
An audition is required for acceptance. Applicants must e-mail an audio file or YouTube link of an Italian art song or aria and an English art song. Students must then register online and make full payment by the deadline (above). Tuition is due in full with application. Applications submitted without full payment will not be considered. Early registration is encouraged to guarantee a space. In the event the program is full or canceled, students will receive a full refund.
