This class will focus on basic vocal technique while tackling the Old American Songs of Aaron Copland. Students will learn how to approach a score from a vocal standpoint. What are the things we need to do when learning a new piece of music? How can a singer make this process easier on the voice? What mistakes make singing certain music more difficult? Learn the ins and outs of how to help your voice. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO SING IN THE FESTIVAL CHORUS to take this class.

The final class in this series will be on Monday, May 11 from 4:30-5:30; the culmination of the work from these past weeks.

A $10 score fee will be collected at the first class.

REGISTER FOR 7-WEEK COURSE

In 2017 Jenny Matteucci, who has an extensive background as a performer, choral director, and voice teacher, became the Festival Chorus Master. Along with Jenny came her husband, Daniel Lockert, a marvelous accompanist and an outstanding language coach. The artistic leadership of this dynamic duo is a wonderful addition to the Festival, and has made it possible for the Festival to offer an ongoing series of courses in various aspects of singing that have transitioned seamlessly (in response to public health considerations) to virtual courses, accessible from anywhere.
