Master Class: song and text

Each participant is asked to find a song that falls outside of their normal singing experience; a lyric singer should look into jazz or pop music; a pop singer should look into classical music, etc. The song chosen must be essentially something with which the singer could identify deeply and must be in his or hers mother tongue. The next step is analysis of the text : what does it mean to the person that will undertake its interpretation and how to express this in a concrete way in front of an audience.
Then, with the instrumentalists, who have also participated in the previous steps, we begin to try to find ways of realizing arrangements that can effectively sustain and support the discovery’s that have been made.
So the master class becomes a place of discovery and creation.
