It was a productive summer with UW students performing and participating in workshops across the United States and abroad. Our voice faculty were active abroad, singing, coaching opera and presenting papers at national conferences. More posts will follow, but for now, enjoy this update from three of our vocal performance students.
Darrell Jordan, D.M.A. Vocal Performance 2019, now a teaching artist with Seattle Opera, performed the title role of Falstaff for Lawrence Opera Theatre, in addition to singing Nadia Boulanger songs on a recital of women composers.
Erika Meyer (B.M. Vocal Performance 2019) and Christopher Benfield (current DMA candidate) both performed as part of Lawrence Opera Theater, singing in the chorus of Falstaff, in recitals for women composers in opera, opera scenes from Peter Grimes (Erika) and Ariadne auf Naxos (Chris), and a musical theatre cabaret.
We’re excited to welcome a new crop of students for the 2019-20 school year while celebrating the many artistic pursuits of the summer!
