Hello Friends in Song!
VOICE & SONG WORKSHOP IN ITALY
While many of us are predominately involved in choral music, many also enjoy and perform in other capacities.
As some of you know, for the past ten years, I have been involved with an
extraordinary, international voice project in Italy each summer.
Participants have joined from Australia, many parts of Europe, England,
Bermuda, Canada, and the USA.
I have placed information about the workshop below, along with the web site.Please contact me if you have any questions, if you would like more
information, or if you would like a brochure mailed to you.
The project fills each year..there are still several spaces remaining and I
wanted to pass this information along to you and members of your chorus.
Enjoy the day and fill it with song!

THE TUSCANY PROJECT: VOICE & SONG
12TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP IN ITALY
JUNE 27 - JULY 9, 2004
Tuscany Project: Voice & Song will be held once again in Italy at Locanda
del Gallo, near Perugia. This will be the 12th year that 24 international
participants gather to explore their singing in more depth. The workshop
offers opportunity to explore voice and song with with an exceptional
international faculty representing the vocal, theater, and movement arts.
Classes include exploratory voice work, individual song work, theater work.
movement, and group singing. Students explore their natural responses to sound and movement to discover how this can be useful in the performance of songs; they explore the use of their voices, and explore the various ways of presenting a song to connect more profoundly with oneself and with an audience. All of this leads to an increased awareness of "presence." The songs that most people bring to work on are Cabaret, jazz, musical theater, some folk tunes since these genres lend themselves to an exploration of subtext and one's personal connection with it.
The villa, Locanda del Gallo (www.locandadelgallo.it), where the project is
held is truly a piece of heaven high in the Umbrian hills. Three sumptuous,al fresco meals and lodging are included in the tuition.
All levels of adult singers are welcome.
