I Can Sing Musical Theatre Too!

Lynn Craver

Classical singers are required more and more to cross over into the musical theatre genre. Opera companies are programming musicals, orchestras are programming pops concerts, and regional musical theatre companies are another avenue to keep performing. This workshop will help classical singers understand how to be competitive in the musical theatre style and to help nail that musical theatre audition. Topics that will be covered include: knowing your type, telling a story in one minute (or less), finding appropriate repertoire, what to wear to your audition, varying vocal styles and how to achieve them - and more.

Four students will have the opportunity to "audition" and workshop a music cut for the class. Students should prepare a 16 and 32 bar cut, as well as a full list/book of repertoire.

1:00 PM, Nabenhauer
