Härnösands Summer Opera Academy 2015

Explore your operatic potential this summer in beautiful Härnösand, Sweden!   In cooperation with Kashu-do Studios, Härnösands Folkhogskola offers a Summer Opera Academy that will provide the ever-developing singer an opportunity to hone in the many skill-sets required of an operatic artist in an environment that is as supportive and genial as it is focused and challenging. The program will provide daily classes in physical fitness and mental focus, vocal technique, musical coaching, scenic interpretation, language and diction, body-alignment/muscular balancing and ensemble singing. Additionally each singer will have the opportunity to perform in daily master classes and take part in a performance of arias and scenes at the end of the program as well as a final concert with the faculty.  Pianists will work closely with singers and with our experienced piano faculty to develop their skills as collaborative pianists.

This year we also offer the Kashu-do Teacher Training Program.  Singers interested in developing their skills as teachers of singing will be introduced to the basics of vocal science (anatomy and acoustics) and learn how to use their acquired knowledge to help the student better their singing skills.
