SINGING

30 AUGUST / 5 SEPTEMBER

GENERAL INFORMATION

“Be the message”

My singing teacher always said: “As a baroque singer you are the messenger and in Pop music you are the message”. If we ask ourselves why we like a particular musician more than others the answer relates rarely to technique but more to something we would call “personality” or “charisma”. In our workshop I will not try to find the “ultimate” interpretation for a song or an aria but instead an interpretation that is rooted in the singers individual research and conclusion. This means that we will have to explore the affetto of a piece as “singing actors” and discover our own very unique conviction about how we want to sing a piece. Every choice of aesthetics, ornamentation and drama needs to serve the message of our music. We will try to make the step from “messenger” to “being the message”.
