Master operatic singing workshop held this Thursday

Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015 — The Susanville Choral Society is hosting a unique event — an Operatic Singing Master Class/Workshop. Everyone who is into performing arts, or into the arts in general, knows how much work and energy a single performance or piece of art represents.

If you are a performer and your focus is on singing, you know that it is not an easy task. It is not enough to just memorize the words and hum the melody. You have to put time and effort into creating a character, into learning the lyrics of the song so they would become your own.

Working with a pianist or a recording that you would use in the performance, work on stage presentation, rehearse with your partner (or possibly partners), maybe even learning a dance that would come with the song. All of that work and time is just to do a few minute solo, ensemble or choral piece.
