Ukrainian Art Song Summer Institute 2018 will be a unique, dramatic experience limited to eight young professionals/emerging artists to further develop their skills in singing classical song and new repertoire: Ukrainian art songs that reflect a spirit of love, poetry and history. Through collaboration, intensive training and a course anthology, they will come away with a clearer understanding of how to express an art song, no matter what form, no matter what language. The week will end with a public, showcase performance.
Participants are required to learn and memorize four assigned art songs before starting the program. Faculty include Pavlo Hunka (bass-baritone), Albert Krywolt (pianist), Robert Kortgaard (pianist) and Dr. Melanie Turgeon (choral director). Accommodation is available.
