We have a huge contingency here that has experienced the cabaret symposium scene out East. It continues again this year in August for two weeks and applications are now being taken for a lucky 8 fellowships to study. Full web submission via the link below. Needed are a video demo with two contrasting songs and a $35 fee.
Selected individuals for the Fellows Program are provided with
an intense course of study under the direction of master artist teachers
Donna McKechnie, Wesla Whitfield, and Mike Greensill. With two sessions
daily, Fellows prepare for a public performance during the conference,
and are also encouraged to experiment and sing at the conference's open
mic sessions. Under the new artistic leadership of Grammy and Emmy Award
Winner John McDaniel, the Cabaret & Performance Conference
reexamines, redefines, and revitalizes the Cabaret art form for the 21st
century using a definition of cabaret as "any kind of live performance
in an intimate space that often breaks the fourth wall".
Go forth and sing!
