Collaborative Pianist Mildred Roche accompanies alumni vocalists Eranga and Tharanga Goonetilleke

This intensive vocal workshop will concentrate on performance issues and audition preparation, with individual focused attention from the faculty in addition to group sessions that will cover a wide range of relevant and practical topics for the serious singer.

The workshop is intended to meet the needs of a wide range of students, from advanced high school students contemplating collegiate musical study up through college students and graduate students, or those recently out of a graduate program, who are in the early stages of pursing a singing career.

The five-day workshop will include voice lessons, individual coaching sessions, rehearsal and practice time, masterclass participation, class sessions, and round-table discussions.  The Friday night recital performance and a mid-week musical theatre cabaret night will be open to the public.
