Claudia Hommel’s hands-on workshop is an opportunity for theatre and music students, amateurs and professionals, to strengthen and deepen how they approach, interpret, and communicate meaning in a song. We delve into the heart of a song’s story to unlock its power, and in so doing, unlock the power of the artist. There’s an amazing equality of spirit as we all share in the work. The professional singer digs more profoundly into the roots of authenticity in performance while the novice is inspired to move forward,and both get the chance to support and guide one another. For our audience, the result is like magic!
