Ukrainian Art Song Summer Institute August 12-18, 2024: Applications are now being accepted
The application deadline is March 1, 2024.
We are excited to announce that plans are well underway for what promises to be another successful Summer Institute. Our faculty returns to share their wealth of knowledge and experience with both vocal and collaborative pianist students.
The faculty includes Benjamin Butterfield, co-director/vocal coach; Dr. Melanie Turgeon, co-director; Andrea Ludwig, vocal coach; Steven Philcox, collaborative pianist; and Dr. Leanne Regehr, collaborative pianist. Click here to learn more about each faculty member.
Only eight vocal artists who wish to develop their classical singing skills while learning a rich and varied repertoire of Ukrainian art songs will be accepted.
This year, one pianist will have the opportunity to work alongside faculty members and the eight vocal artists/participants. This experience allows the pianist to explore the rich style and context of Ukrainian art songs and their classical composers while honing the skills required for a successful career as a collaborative pianist.
We encourage artists (professional or emerging, upper-undergraduate or graduate) to audition now. The Summer Institute provides intensive one-on-one coaching and masterclasses by our professional faculty in an informal setting, culminating in a public recital by the nine Summer Institute students and our two faculty collaborative pianists.
Both vocal artists and collaborative pianists are invited to audition for the Ukrainian Art Song Summer Institute. They are requested to submit a completed application form by March 1, 2024, along with a non-refundable $50.00 CDN application fee.
