June 27-August 5, 2022 / Weekly synchronous classes to be scheduled with students
Online course

Teresa Ringholz

A six-week comprehensive study of vocal literature by women composers through the centuries. This course explores the music of composers such as Francesca Caccini, Clara Schumann, Maria Malibran, Cécile Chaminade, Amy Beach, Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, and Grace Williams, including biographical information combined with cultural history. The influence of these women on their female and male contemporaries rounds out this course of rich (sometimes obscure) art songs to bring them to the forefront of vocal repertoire. Weekly lectures as well as performance of the literature by participants make this a very engaging, interactive course for singers, pedagogues, and vocal coaches.
