25th August - 8th September, 2013
focuses on the importance of the Italian language in the evolution of the Bel
Canto method of singing through the ages. It is aimed at voice students intending to pursue a professional
career or professionals wishing to improve their Italian diction. Serious
beginners are also welcome. The course puts emphasis on communication, vocal
style and performance skills, and takes place in the beautiful mountain
The basic structure of the programme is as follows:
Depending on numbers it is possible some of the individual coaching sessions will be replaced by longer mini groups.
This is a small, friendly course (numbers will be between 10 and 15 maximum) where singers receive real personal attention. We organise excursions to the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of opportunities for relaxation. You can enjoy the café on the main square and the Italian cuisine in the town's typical restaurants. We hope you will have a very enjoyable stay and will consider this an Italian holiday as well as an extremely rewarding experience for your singing.
Coaching sessions and rehearsals will be held in the well-equipped Palazzo Lombardini, formerly the Novafeltria Secondary School and now the permanent home of Mestro Fabbri’s Academy, Voci nel Montefeltro, and at the beautiful Teatro Sociale, Novafeltria, across the street from each other in the centre of town, which will soon become a year round Opera Academy for Belcanto Diction, Phrasing and Expression, to be known as the Voci nel Montefeltro (Voices of Montefeltro) founded and directed by Ubaldo Fabbri.
There are ample possibilities for practice time.
Fiona Macleod is a very accomplished young accompanist for you to work with and there are ample possibilities for individual practice time.
