Classical Voice Intensive

Summer Programs

Classical Voice Intensive

The Vocal Performance Program in Music and Performing Arts Professions offers a two-week intensive workshop during which students explore the techniques of classical vocal performance from the perspective of the singing actor. The workshop employs both group and individual instruction, and activities include yoga for singers, stage deportment and dance classes, staging rehearsals, lyric diction and song analysis classes, private song coachings, voice lessons, and a series of master classes on subjects related to the field. The workshop culminates with presentation in which students perform the material they have been working on in class.
