The Colburn School · Los Angeles, CA
May 31-June 28
SongFest at the Colburn School in Los Angeles is the premier festival and summer training program in the US dedicated primarily to art song. The uniquely broad scope of its offerings is comprised of a rigorous curriculum addressing the concerns of the 21st-century singer and collaborative pianist with classes in acting, movement, diction, repertoire and career guidance workshops, daily master classes taught by an international roster of leading recital artists and pedagogues, collaborations with leading American composers and the presentation of at least one commissioned world premiere every summer, and an exciting concert series presented at Colburn’s state-of-the-art venues.
SongFest is pleased to welcome new artist faculty: soprano Lucy Shelton and baritones Rudolf Piernay and Sanford Sylvan to the 2014 Program! Read more about Lucy Shelton on her website and visit faculty pages at the Guildhall School in London for Mr. Piernay, and at The Juilliard School and McGill University for Mr. Sylvan.
