2,5-days Masterclass for advanced amateur singers with soprano Johannette Zomer and drama-teacher Philip Curtis

Why can’t I just sing?

Being just a good singer is sometimes not enough!

In this class the student singers will learn how to tell the story expressed by the poems and texts, using a combination of vocal technique and physical expression. In two group sessions with Philip Curtis (singer, director and drama teacher at the Royal Conservatory The Hague and the Prins Claus Conservatory Groningen), students will work on stage presence and dramatic interpretation, giving them the personal guidance they need for enhanced performance.

For the rest of the weekend Johannette and Philip will give separate private lessons with the aim of sharpening the vocal and physical tools necessary for further development.

On Sunday 17th the singers, with their newly-improved skills, can present themselves in a concert.

The participants are accompanied by Roele Kok on grand piano.

on the 15th   from 7.00 p.m.
16th and 17th          9.30 – 6.00 p.m.
