EVDIV 331 — Vocal Performance Seminar
An effective vocal performance requires more than memorizing the words and notes of a song. A successful singer chooses repertoire that is varied and appropriate for his/her voice; translates and interprets a song’s poetry in order to convey its meaning; and closely studies the accompaniment in order to unlock the song’s full musical expression. This coaching and repertoire-building seminar helps singers develop their skills in performing the great art song and operatic literature in English, French, German, and Italian. Through one-on-one coaching and group discussion, students learn a methodical approach to mastering both text and music and are guided through winning strategies for rehearsing and performing with confidence and artistry. The course culminates in a final in-class recital of the repertoire studied. Placement audition required.
