This one-week intensive program is designed for singers in middle to high school to experience the professional discipline of preparing Italian/English art songs as well as poetry for a performance.  Our specialty is the exploration of the art song as a fusion of poetry and music. Focus on vocal technique, vocal performance, English diction for singers, vowel placement, acting, poetry, singer’s breathing and resonance, musicianship, pilates for singers, and dress rehearsal. The program culminates in a concert of art songs and poems on the last day of the academy.
