2013 Theme: Benjamin Britten
The Cornish-American Song Institute offers a two-week intensive study of Art-Song for vocalists,pianists, and composers in two of England’s most picturesque locales. The first 4 days are spent in Oxford for master classes with Dr. John Traill (Head of Music, St. Anne’s College, Oxford), Robert Saxton (Head of Music, Worcester College, Oxford), and soprano, Teresa Cahill (Trinity College of Music, London). Following this residency the Institute will move to Falmouth, Cornwall. Here participants receive applied lessons from Christopher Newport University Professors of Music, Dr. David Sadlier, tenor, and Dr. Lelia Sadlier, piano. This year we are pleased to announce the birth of Dr. Gregory Martin’s son, Henry, but are saddened to announce his impending paternity leave from the 2013 Institute. We are, however, honored to share the appointment of Dr. Anastasia Antonacos as Dr. Martin’s substitute.
The Institute includes several day trips to local sites, and the participants will give several concerts during their time in the UK.
Performances from the 2011-12 Institute included appearances at Trebah Garden (Falmouth), The Falmouth Methodist Church, The Parish Church (Falmouth), The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, and St. Annes’ College (Oxford).
Come join us for this career-changing experience.
