Vocal class at CMC Saturday
The Emerald City Opera and Colorado Mountain College are continuing their vocal masterclass and pedagogy series. The next class will be held Saturday on the CMC campus.
Recognized opera professionals teach each class. Featured vocal artists from the Emerald City Opera will teach masterclasses while in residence in Steamboat Springs for opera concerts. Students will have the opportunity to sing a piece for the group and one of the master teachers and to be personally coached by mezzo-soprano Jean Kraft of the Metropolitan Opera (retired), soprano Constance Haldaman, soprano Jane Thorngren or Walter MacNeill, tenor.
Students who do not wish to perform are encouraged to register as auditors to gain the benefits of observing the vocal process at work.
Each masterclass will be limited to a maximum of 12 students, allowing performers up to 20 minutes of personal instruction with the teacher. Separate sessions will be dedicated to youth voices and adult voices. Students will be expected to be able to perform one complete song from memory and will need the approval of their private voice instructor to register.
