Please see full bios here. The 4 day workshop focuses on performance skills needed by singers of any genre (cabaret, jazz, musical theater, pop, etc) who work in front of a live audience. 24 singers selected from auditions will work in a supportive group setting to gain skill and insight into how to be more effective in a concert hall, club, recital, musical audition – virtually any live performance setting.

Other topics such as show structure, patter writing and song arranging are addressed.
