Vocal Performance Workshop with Martha Rodríguez-Salazar
Led by voice faculty member Martha Rodriguez-Salazar and accompanied by Paul McMath, this is a great chance to work through a song with piano and receive performance feedback. This will also be an opportunity to rehearse with a pianist in advance of the March 22nd Performathon Voice Department recital. Self-accompanying is fine as well. The Voice Department will host a one hour student performance showcase at Field Day, our CMC-wide fundraising event—sign up will begin in January. Priority for the CMC Sunday workshop will be given to Performathon singers.
