Intensive Voice Workshop 2018

19 May, 2018 to 3 June, 2018

Laurier’s Faculty of Music is proud to present Intensive Studies in Voice Performance, a unique workshop for undergraduate and graduate-level singers who wish to pursue vocal studies beyond the fall and winter terms offered by most universities.

The concentration of studies in these two weeks results in significant, often accelerated vocal progress and a well-learned body of repertoire, some of which is performed in recital during the workshop. All offerings are presented within a holistic framework in a community-centred, collegial, supportive atmosphere for optimum growth.

Dates: May 19 to June 3, 2018
