Some Updates

Our March Song Workshop was postponed until April because of the poor weather, popularly known as the “Beast from the East”. It was moved to April 21st, and we had a great day exploring Italian, French and German song repertoire.

Stephen will be the keynote speaker at the two-day conference on singing entitled Transfigured Voices: Vocal disorders, disruptions and impersonations at the University of Caen on May 17 & 18.

July sees Stephen travelling to the southern hemisphere where he will be leading a week-long series of masterclasses in Melbourne, Australia, with Graham Johnson from July 7 at part of the Melbourne International Festival of Lieder and Art Song.

Don’t forget to read the details of our 2018 Ansells Summer Music festival, to be held in June.

Vancouver International Song Institute

On June 19 I fly out to Vancouver for the VISI extravaganza on English song. I shall be giving a recital with Graham Johnson on June 22, then a series of masterclasses and talks alongside other performers and academics, finishing on June 27. It’s wonderful that such interest is being shown in this important but neglected field.
