Yiddish Vocal Workshop

Sat, Jan 26, 2014, 2–4pm
Jalopy Theatre and School of Music
315 Columbia St
Brooklyn, NY

This workshop will feature traditional songs and vocal techniques for authentic Yiddish singing. The workshop repertoire will include rare nineteenth century ballads and lyrical songs featuring the most beautiful of melodies and poignant of stories, taught in detail from original field recordings of master Old World singers.

The class will also focus on vocal techniques and ornamentation appropriate to the singing of traditional Yiddish song. Students will learn how to produce the delicate yet focused sound of traditional Yiddish singers, and will learn how to hear and reproduce the melismatic embellishments traditionally used to enhance the singing of this beautiful repertoire. Students will also learn how to sing with increased comfort, clarity, and control, and will learn how to sculpt vocal lines to effect maximum emotional expression.

A knowledge of spoken Yiddish is not necessary to take this workshop, and the program is open to singers of all levels.

Taught by Acclaimed Vocalist, Researcher, Instructor
Carol Freeman

Admission $30
