Vocal Masterclass Featuring Soprano Dominique Labelle, April 11
Early Music Now announces a masterclass for classical singers to be taught by soprano Dominique Labelle at the Wisconsin Womenâ€™s Club, 813 East Kilbourn Ave., on Friday, April 11th, from 3:00-5:00.
Singers interested in participating in this masterclass are invited to submit a professional resume along with titles of two choices for coaching during the session (submission of a sound recording is optional) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although any repertoire will be considered, early music or Baroque selections are preferred. A professional accompanist will be provided. To take best use of the available time, all repertoire must be totally memorized and prepared to performance level.
Deadline for applications is March 24th, with notification of acceptance by April 1st. There is no registration fee for participation, and the sessions are open to the general public without charge.
Dominique Labelle first came to international prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellarâ€™s daring production of Mozartâ€™s Don Giovanni, set in Spanish Harlem, which she performed in New York, Paris, and Vienna. She has also won great acclaim for her portrayal of Micaela in Bizetâ€™s Carmen: â€śYou would have to go back to the young Mirella Freni to find a Micaela to rival the golden-throated Labelle . . . her singing is enough to give you religion,â€ť wrote Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe.
