Join Broadway veteran Joanne Borts and Klezmer Superstar Josh Dolgin So-Called in a 4-day crash course aka How To Send Your Performance Across the Footlights into the Hearts of the Audience.
Every Yiddish song has its own character, its own colour and its own unique place in the vast sea of Yiddish repertoire. And each singer brings his or her unique personal touch to a song. This Masterclass looks for an authentic representation of both singer and song, with an understanding of the Yiddish language and historical context.
Come prepared with two memorized Yiddish songs and then get ready to be open to Possibility. (bring sheet music, please!) We’ll work the music and lyrics moment-to–moment until you’re truly performance-ready.
Faculty: Joanne Borts and Josh Dolgin
