What it means to be a 21st Century Singer?

with John Fisher, Julia Faulkner and Matthew Rose

10 - 16 June 2018

Snape Maltings


Legendary vocal coach and Head of Music at The Metropolitan Opera, John Fisher joins forces with Julia Faulkner, who has established herself as one of the top voice teachers in the world, whose students read like the who’s who at international opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Vienna State Opera, Bavarian State Opera, San Fransisco Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago, among others. Together with acclaimed bass Matthew Rose this stellar team of tutors will examine what it means to be a singer in the 21st century and ask how we can lead the profession into the future. The course will take into account teaching traditions and values from both sides of the Atlantic. Intensive coaching in 1:1 sessions and public masterclasses will culminate in a final recital as part of the Aldeburgh Festival. 


Repertoire choice for this course is free, but the final recital will focus on American and British songs.


Some classes will be open to the public.
