Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this summer’s Classical Singers’ Workshop has been reconfigured as an online intensive series of seminars and interactive classes.
The Classical Singers’ Workshop will run from Monday July 13 to Thursday, July 16, from 10:00 am to 4:00 or 5:00 pm daily. This program is aimed at rising 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. Classes will be offered on such topics as Foreign Language Diction, Audition Preparation, Interpretation of Art Song Texts, Recitative, Movement for Singers, Breath Support and Resonance, and Vocal Health. The Seminar will conclude with a Master Class with Elizabeth Futral and a Q & A round table discussion with Peabody Conservatory Voice Faculty.
