In the HSU Opera Workshop, students “study basic stagecraft, collaboration, and musical accuracy,” according to Elisabeth Harrington, who teaches it. “They learn challenging and diverse music, and then practice uniting their singing and acting, both as soloists and as ensemble members. For this program, they were each assigned roles that they could accomplish, vocally and dramatically. Some are more experienced, but for many of them this is a first public performance.”
“The Opera Workshop offers Humboldt voice students an opportunity to hone their performing skills,” Harrington said. “For them, this performance is about presenting the results of their hard work in a public way.”
Admission for both shows is $6 general, $2 student/senior, and HSU students free with ID. Tickets can be purchased from the HSU Ticket Office (826-3928) or at the door. This concert is produced by HSU Department of Music. For more information: 826-3531.
