Day 35: Bouncing, Throwing, and Running*

The Master Class phenomenon is a “thing” in the classical music world. In its best incarnation, an experienced and acclaimed artist works publicly with a young musician, and the assembled audience gets to peek behind the curtain and learn something about how a successful performance is constructed. And when handled with respect for both the process and the young artist, it results in growth for everyone in the room.

And thanks to Michelle DeYoung’s artistry and her fabulous goodwill toward our singers, we hit the mark in today’s class.

It was a pleasure to talk to you this afternoon and even more fun to sit in on the Master Class. Besides hearing great singing it is fascinating to hear how immediate is the result of expert coaching. I learned some interesting techniques myself.
You have assembled a great group of performers!
