International Voice and Piano Collaborative Masterclass in the Italian Alps,

July 17 - 31:

Join soprano Christina Raphaëlle Haldane and pianist Dr. Carl Phillippe Gionet for two weeks of intensive training in the beautiful surroundings of the Italian Alps in Breno, Italy. This program is small in size so that each individual artist will get daily personal attention. Working along-side others of similar calibre on body awareness, repertoire, voice or piano technique, diction and performance will be the focus. Each performer will have daily lessons, coachings and performance in the masterclass. Making music at the conservatory in the Italian Alps surrounded by the Italian language inspires each performer to push themselves beyond what they imagine is possible. This intense period of study enables the individual artist to grow tremendously in a short period of time. Every day, each performer is given tasks to accomplish on their own, with guidance from both Miss Haldane and Dr. Gionet, working towards a performance in a final concert at the end of the program.

 

On top of their training, the students will have the chance to take in an opera at the Verona Arena, an ancient amphitheatre, and visit this historical city.

Mission Statement

What makes classical singing such an engaging art form, for both the performer and the listener? Each and every one of us has our own unique instrument and our own story to tell, with a joyful route to travel with regards to musical exploration. Human emotion is so beautifully expressed through the marriage of melody and text, in addition to the added excitement of hearing the singing voice create a ‘super human’ sound.

 

 

Classical singing found me, I did not find it. At a young age I realised I loved to perform and explore characters, subjecting my family to many ‘one woman’ shows in my living room! As a teenager I then discovered I had a voice that leant itself to the classical medium, so I began developing my passion for operatic, concert and song repertoire: merging my love of storytelling and music. My singing technique revolves around a grounded yet free breath flow and a resonant phonation. I focus on exploring vocal colours and musical expression through text and diction, with an emphasis on character and drama. In the teaching studio, I ensure that each student is given the tools in which to explore their own individual voice, in an environment that is friendly, open and safe. Studying classical singing is all about experimentation, and discovering what works best for each individual person and voice.

Carl and I will work individually with the student pianists in order to fine-tune the techniques required to play for classical vocalists: on how best to support singers, as well as establishing and maintaining a true partnership throughout the music-making process. Carl will also coach the student singers on musicianship, diction, style, interpretation and presentation. -Christina Haldane

About us

Masterclass 2014...

 

“I would recommend this program to other singers, because I loved being in the Italian Alps with incredible teachers.  Having no other distractions and having many opportunities to perform, I feel like I’ve grown so much in such a short period.”

 

“The International Voice masterclass experience has been many things for me.  Being here, and challenged daily, I began to realize that I am capable as an artist.  I think it pushed me to become more in tune with who I am and what I have to offer on stage.  In this way, the class exceeded my expectations.  I never thought I would begin in to feel more comfortable with myself in performance in such a short period of time.”

 

“I would definitely recommend this program to other singers.  Not only are you able to spend two weeks completely focused on your craft with daily guidance with phenomenal coaches, but to do it in a breathtakingly beautiful place like Breno, Italy is even more inspiring.  To be able to get away from every-day life to reflect inwards and be able to study what you love with the help of seriously talented musicians and mentors is more than any singer could ask for.  I am truly humbled by this experience and feel as though I have gained more from it that I am even aware at this point.”

 

“I really enjoyed that I was learning even when I wasn’t the one singing.  Observing the other singers in the masterclass helped me understand many of the concepts that I was struggling with.  Having a combination of private lessons and masterclass on a daily basis helped me to improve my singing in such a short period of time.”


“I would definitely recommend this program to other singers, because no matter what the level of the singer, they will have the opportunity to work with such talented performers and teachers in a concentrated amount of time, ensuring growth.  Not only do you get the chance to sing every day, but you get to experience being in another country and you also make new friends.  I found this personally very helpful, because I was around others who love singing as much as I do, and I was inspired by them.”
