How do you go from singing a song to discovering that song, that story, into existence? To bringing people to their feet, or to tears? In this series, singers prepare duets and solos from famous musicals and operas, participating in and observing tailored vocal coachings. Students evolve past rote memorization by developing skills in song research, character and story comprehension, and engaged performance. Series culminates in a performance at the historic Music Academy of the West.
