We had a fantastic masterclass with GFA Winner Thomas Viloteau earlier last season, so I know a lot of you are fired up to see our next masterclass with Jeremy Lyons and Lisa Perry, soprano on February 23rd. Masterclasses are an incredible opportunity to gain insights into what makes musicians tick, and what makes music beautiful. Make sure you sign up soon so you don’t miss out!
NOTE, we still have a few performance spots left! Sign up soon if you’d like to perform.
Coming up next Saturday, February 23rd, Dr. Jeremy Lyons and Lisa Perry, soprano will be teaching a masterclass at 1:30 pm in the West Room of Church of the Covenant. Jeremy completed his Bachelor studies with noted pedagogue Bruce Holtzman, and more recently his Master’s and DMA with maestro Manuel Barrueco at Peabody Conservatory. Jeremy really knows his stuff and is passionate about making music and sharing his excitement with his students. Jeremy will be joined in this masterclass by Lisa Perry, soprano, an accomplished operatic singer who is currently completing her DMA at Peabody Conservatory.
Check out Jeremy and Lisa’s performance of several of Manuel de Falla’s Siete Canciones Populares Españolas on YouTube. Truly beautiful.
Now, you may be asking, what is a masterclass? Picture a masterclass as a public lesson in which a visiting artist listens to and critiques students one at a time in front of an audience so that everyone in attendance may benefit from their instruction. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study, if only for a short time, with some of the brightest rising stars of the music world.
Intrigued? Sign up to perform for Jeremy and Lisa and receive personalized coaching from some of the best young musicians in the world, who have studied with some of the most highly respected pedagogues of classical guitar and voice. Musicians of all levels are welcome to perform. Don’t feel ready to perform, or just curious? Sign up as an auditor, and take advantage of the advice given to our masterclass performers.
All masterclasses are open to the public and free to observe, but registration is required. There are only a few performance slots left, so don’t hesitate to reserve your slot if you’d like to perform in the class (a small performer fee applies). Register as either an auditor or performer for Friday’s class in our Online Store.
Don’t miss your chance to learn from the best. Sign up to perform or audit a masterclass today!
