The 21st Century Singer

10 – 16 June 2018

Reflect on the present and explore the future of singing with John Fisher, Julia Faulkner and Matthew Rose.

Two legendary vocal coaches join forces: John Fisher, Head of Music at the Metropolitan Opera, and Julia Faulkner, whose student list reads like a “who’s who” of international opera houses.

Together with acclaimed bass Matthew Rose, this stellar team of tutors will examine what it means to be a singer in the 21st century and ask how we can lead the profession in the future. The course embraces teaching traditions, approaches and values from both sides of the Atlantic – it comprises intensive coaching in 1:1 sessions, public masterclasses and will culminate in a recital as part of the Aldeburgh Festival.

Participants have a free choice of repertoire but are asked to include both British and American songs.

Final Recital: Saturday 16 June
