Singing in English
with Adrian Thompson
Accompanist: Colin Hunt
Friday 21 September – Sunday 23 September 2018
Course No. 3299
Solo Study Course
Often overlooked as either a native tongue, or the very able second language of many others, singing in English presents its own technical challenges. It is sometimes not considered in the same depth dramatically, as it is accepted that knowing what the words mean will sufficiently address the context of the piece. This course seeks to address this imbalance!
Work with renowned tenor Adrian Thompson on two pieces in original English settings, English/ American song, opera or oratorio and discover the different emotional layers and the best way to sing English technically.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, approximately 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
