Get Back in (Singing) Shape:
A Post-Pandemic Workshop for Choral Singers
with Bonnie Pomfret, soprano and master teacher
Even if your choir had virtual rehearsals, sitting in front of a screen and singing to it are nothing like singing in an acoustical space with other singers! As we begin at last to make music together, it’s time to get our voices back in shape with a technical tune-up. In this hands-on workshop, Bonnie will help your choral singers:
—reconnect to their breathing —reclaim their support
—enhance their resonance —energize their singing
Your singers will feel (and you will hear) the difference!
One-hour workshop by appointment: $200, in-person or virtual.
Bonnie Pomfret, soprano, has sung around the U.S. and internationally; her solo CD of songs by American women was received to critical acclaim. She holds the DM in Voice from Indiana University, the MM in Voice from Boston Conservatory. Bonnie is a Certified McClosky Vocal Technician and Master Teacher and served as a Singing Voice Specialist at Peoria ENT Group and Emory Voice Center (Atlanta). Bonnie has served on the voice faculties of Boston University, Emory University, and Illinois State University, and has presented at the International Congress of Voice Teachers, the Korean Association of Voice Professionals in the Arts, the Voice Foundation, the American Speech and Hearing Association, and at numerous regional conferences.
