“Concetto Armonico” cultural association organizes the second edition of Vicenza in Lirica, an international music and singing festival: a rich program of events such as master classes on opera and chamber singing, concerts in “Palazzi” and churches, conferences and other cultural activities. During the two weeks, guest artists will give their contribution to the festival.
The project is realized under the patronage of Regione del Veneto, Provincia di Vicenza and Comune di Vicenza, and thanks to Gallerie d’Italia – Palazzo Leoni Montanari that grant the use of the Palazzo rooms for the master classes and other events.
The two Master Classes will take place from Tuesday to Saturday on the following dates:
- Master Class with piano Professor Norman Shetler on Vocal Chamber music from 24th to 28th June 2014.
- Master Class on opera singing with Maestro Sherman Lowe from 1st to 5th July 2014.
The Master Classes are intended for students who wish to perfect their vocal and interpretative abilities focusing on the choice of their repertoire. Both Master Classes are accompanied on the piano. The pianist will be at the student’s disposal each Monday before the master class begins for a rehearsal.
The association’s aim is to offer students opportunities to perform in concerts where they can be heard by agents, artistic directors or musical institutions. Experiences in front of a public, confrontation with other singers and advanced studies offered by a Master Class with a well-known teacher are basic elements for a professional development of any artist.
