Being Heard; the fundamentals of projection

December 7th, 6PM-8PM at Trinity Anglican Church, adjoining the music conservatory in Downtown Mount Vernon.

There are no small roles and every line is important so make sure they can hear you! In this vocal workshop we will be working on making sure your voice rises above the rest and that the back row can hear you. We will be focusing on volume, quality and protection of the voice in theater. We may be focusing on the voice, but we will be moving so make sure to dress in clothes that will move with you.

We ask for a suggested donation of $5 per participant, due to building-use costs.

PCMA is a place where all ages may study artistic disciplines to enrich lives, gain expertise, and create careers.
