Vocal Masterclass: The Art of Baroque Recitative

When: Mon., May 8, 3-5 p.m. 2017

Every singer of Baroque music has to deal with a highly stylized form of musical speech called “recitative.” Bach Specialist David Gordon has performed and taught Baroque recitative around the world, and in this lecture/masterclass he will show us how to study, learn, and perform this difficult vocal style. Most of all, he will teach us to love it! Presented in collaboration with Saint Louis University’s music program in the department of Fine and Performing Arts. This event is FREE.
