with Joan Rodgers
NEW COURSE

Friday 19 – Sunday 21 February 2021
Accompanist: Richard Shaw

Level: All
Fee: £250

The text is integral to all types of singing but never more so in Art Song. Working closely on the interpretation of this text can lead to discovering a range of colours and vocal qualities which can give greater freedom to the voice and help singers and their audiences connect more deeply with the music.

Work on art songs from any composer with one of the leading sopranos of her generation, Russian songs are a particular passion but German, French and English are all welcome.
