"A Conversation with the Artist" is a non-traditional interview/masterclass/discussion/Q&A in the same style as our Venetian Art Society (VAS) Art Salons. We envision a singer's version of James Lipton's "Inside the Actor's Studio," with emphasis on all aspects of the journey from childhood dream, through education, and to the reality of living "The Life of the Professional Singer." The goal for this session is to encompass vocal technique, music education/history/styles, drama and stage movement, health and physical issues, scheduling, and any other issues that arise in the day to day life of a professional singing actor. We have requested that the artist discuss the personal path from childhood through high school and college, through the semi-professional internship period, and into the professional arena. The 21st century singing actor has many issues with which to deal in order to present the most complete, professional, technically proficient, and artistically sound "package," and our goal is to impress the necessity for a balanced combination of skill, talent, intelligence, determination, and perseverance in every student. The Art Salon "conversational" atmosphere is a relaxed, yet focused, setting that will take the pressure off the students, artists, and audience participants and create a nurturing and all encompassing learning experience.
