Master Class with Colten Blair (The Sound of Music)
Colten Blair, currently understudying Rolf on the national tour of The Sound of Music, stops by Starling Voice Studio for a morning master class focused on individual coachings for semi-professional and professional actors and singers. Colten’s focus in his three hours will be on individually coaching each enrolled student in prepared song of their choice – with an eye to bringing solid vocal and acting technique to your work simultaneously. This is a rare chance to receive feedback from someone who is successfully working nationally, for a fraction of the cost of similar workshops in New York City (and without the hassle of travel)!
An accompanist will be provided for all participants.
