Singers should arrive in Greve prepared with arias and art songs they wish to perfect.
The Daniel Ferro Vocal Program centers on the time-tested medium of the Master Class, where the instructor works with each singer on a rotating basis. Those observing, learn by example and can relate new concepts of technique and interpretation to their own preparation. Over the years many legendary teachers of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have imparted their wisdom in this setting.
Master classes led by prestigious international faculty and Guest Artists constitute the core of the program and provide intensive study of vocal technique as applied to the literature.
In addition to frequent individual work in the master classes, active participants are scheduled for private lessons with Guest Teachers.
Individual coachings are scheduled for all active participants, focusing on musical preparation with respect to style, tradition, and accuracy of presentation.
Active singers have the opportunity to perform, at the discretion of the Faculty, in one or more public recitals in Greve and the surrounding region.
Members of our international faculty will present a master class devoted to the repertoire in a particular linguistic tradition or area of interest. Singers will participate at the discretion of the faculty.
Italian conversation and diction, integrated into the weekly schedule, is offered to all attendees.
