Program Description
Opera & Me: From School to Stage Join an MSM teaching artist as they take students on a virtual journey through their musical life as an opera singer. They trace their career path, starting with their own roots to their days as a Conservatory student at Manhattan School of Music, leading to performance opportunities in New York City and on the international stage. Joined by a pianist, the teaching artist performs classic opera arias, musical theatre show tunes, and even some familiar kids' songs! With an emphasis on interactive engagement, this course introduces vocal exercises, offers performance tips, and invites on-the-spot student participation in an opera aria performance. Join us for an inspirational program detailing the life and career of a young musician, which will encourage students in the pursuit of their own aspirations.
Program Format
The presentation will include performances of a variety of song styles.
Objectives
Students will:
- learn about different genres of vocal music
