It's been a bit of a relentless summer so far - after the Babbitt concert with Augustus Arnone (lovingly posted as a YouTube playlist!), the premiere of The Strange Child by Julia Werntz in Pittsburgh, recording Roger Reynolds' Sketchbook for The Unbearable Lightness of Being (my first professional music video!) and a re-energizing week of electroacoustic mayhem at SPLICE Festival in Kalamazoo, I am finally HOME for a bit.
This week, I'm working on my Levels I-III certifications in Somatic VoiceWork, a method of vocal training and pedagogy that is expansive in breadth and generous in spirit. . .I cannot wait to apply what I'm learning in lessons! It feels like I'm braiding together several threads of knowledge from my previous coursework in voice science, as well as the training I had in music education, many years ago. . .
Next up: Omaha Under the Radar with my dear Damselfly Trio flutist, Frau Chelsea Czuchra. . . singing music by Ursula Mamlok, Rebecca Saunders, Brittany Green, and Marti Epstein!
