Tonight, I write to encourage you to check out Michelle DeYoung’s master class this Sunday afternoon. As much as we all love listening to the finished product in operas and concerts, having a chance to peek behind the curtain and see how singers really put together and polish their performances always gives music lovers a new appreciation for the art form. Michelle will work with 5 of our Studio Artists, customizing her approach to the singer, the repertoire, and the performance.
Repertoire is subject to change between now and Sunday, but at this writing we can expect to hear arias from Dvořák’s Rusalka, Wagner’s Tannhäuser, Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, and Rossini’s L’italiana in Algeri. And given the robut nature of Michelle’s concert career, I feel certain there will also be some art song in the mix.
