Story, Song and Stage, Directed by La Tonya Hall | Winter '18 Ensemble & Recital Series | School of Jazz

Monday, April 30, 2018 at 7:00 pm

School of Jazz Performance Space, Room I531, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

Performance is a central component of every student's education at The New School's School of Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the Ensemble Showcases are where faculty-led student groups showcase their talent and creativity.

This course investigates the story in a song and how to stage that story effectively. It is designed to aid the vocalist in becoming a public performer capable of engaging an audience in a personal interpretation of the meaning of a song. There are four primary foci: personalization of the lyric through the creation of background story, character, sense memory and environment; development of lyric interpretive melody singing including the purposeful use of melodic variations; development of ease and flexibility in the vocal production; staging and performance using all these skills in a public forum.
