"The basis of all music is the human voice... The original instrument of man. The voice heard in its purest form--
in recital ---is perhaps one of the most important contributions to musical values in our lives." - -Isaac Stern
The newly inaugurated Art Song Institute is dedicated to the broader expansion of the original Mission of Joy In Singing as created by our founder, Winifred Cecil. Using the template amply provided by her work with hundreds of students, we have modeled a goal to create a career path that is both artistically and financially sustainable for singers who wish to dedicate their performance lives to the classical song recital.
The program is currently under construction, and we will offer classes and workshops in acting, poetry, deportment, mind-body training, collaborative piano and music history and literature. Please watch this space for upcoming program activity announcements.
