60-90 minutes; Grades 10-12, College and Graduate Levels, Community Ensembles
We love to work with choruses and ensembles willing to take feedback and push their music-making to the next level! A master class begins with a performance by BealeCanto, followed by individual introductions and a brief history of the organization. Student ensembles present one to three pieces, depending upon the length of session. BealeCanto artists identify three specific areas to work on and take turns leading the master class. The director remains at the podium to allow for direct application of principles discussed in the master class. If observers are present, their visual feedback is integrated into the critique process. Session ends with Q&A.
