How can we best communicate with an audience through art song? How do performers convey a story and move us through music, whether in the course of a single melody or a sequence of songs?
Internationally renowned baritone Roderick Williams brings together a stellar team of tutors to explore what makes a moving performance.
12 singers and 6 pianists will examine texts and storytelling in-depth, working in pre-allocated duos throughout the week.
The main repertoire focus is on works written for voice & piano in English with some additional time spent examining singing in different languages, particularly in the singers’ mother tongue.
Each duo will work in 1:1 sessions, including voice lessons by legendary teacher Julia Faulkner, and public masterclasses.

Programme to prepare: Information will be sent out the accepted participants closer to the date. However, the expectation is that participants will mostly work on repertoire for voice & piano in English.
Additionally other languages will be explored to examine how singing in a different language affects our ability to create a moving performance. Participants for whom English is not their first language are requested to bring a small amount of repertoire in their mother tongue.
Participants whose mother tongue is English are asked to bring a small amount of repertoire that is in a different language.
