Upcoming Master Classes and Workshops
Interpreting a Lyric with Carla Rose Fisher
Space is limited to 16 students. Register now to reserve your spot!
April 7, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Ages 16 and up
Putting forth a lyric is more than figuring out why characters are saying what they’re saying. Once you’ve done your research on a role, it’s time to dive into diction! Each word in a lyric is carefully chosen for many reasons, and those words provide clues to take a singer from sweet to spectacular. Through anecdotes and song excerpts for practical application, learn small ways you can make a big difference in performance, and get some audition tips along the way! Each participant is to prepare a song for a coaching portion of the workshop.
Registration for the master class includes one ticket to the performance of "It Shoulda Been You" at 7:30 p.m.
MEET CARLA ROSE FISHER
Carla Rose Fisher made her Broadway debut as a lyricist with the musical It Shoulda Been You (Outer Critics Circle and Drama League nominations), collaborating with composer Barbara Anselmi, whom she met in the BMI Workshop in New York City. A member of the Dramatists Guild, Carla moderated a librettist panel for The Dramatist magazine that included Craig Lucas, Jon Marans and Jeremy Desmon. Her song “Go On” was released by Canadian artist Amy Sky on the album ALIVE & AWAKE. With a message of healing after loss, it is the theme song for The Grief Dialogues, a multimedia piece about death and dying for which Carla serves on the Advisory Council. The show premiered last year in Seattle, where she lives with her husband and two boys. Her current projects include a full-length musical and a children’s book. http://carlarosefisher.com.
