Sent to students today…..

Jennifer Johnson Cano, a 2006 alum, is presenting a guest voice recital on Friday evening at 7.30 in the CMS concert hall.  She is then speaking for 90 minutes on Saturday at 1.30 pm in CMS 10.  She’s a major rising star with some impressive NYC performances in the past year.  She now on the artist roster at the Met.  And she started here as a music education major.  You should hear what she has to say.

On Monday, world-renowned soprano (and Webster University Visiting Artist in Residence) Christine Brewer is speaking at 730 pm in the music building recital hall.  She’ll be joined by the Directors of Artistic Administration for Opera Theatre of Saint Louis and the Saint Louis Symphony in a panel discussion.  (Sadly, this is opposite the Kim Portnoy Sextet in Moore Auditoirum at 7.)  They will be discussing the roles of administration and artist, and of course answering your questions.  EVERY performance major – and indeed every music major – really should be at one of these events on Monday evening!

Christine Brewer returns on Tuesday evening for a 730 pm master class with advanced voice students in the CMS concert hall.

ALL of these are seminar points!!!  And every single one is worthwhile.  Please go to those required by your applied teacher, and then pick one or two more to attend!
