Vocal Embroidery: Ornamental Techniques from Bulgaria and Georgia is an intermediate to advanced workshop focused on various melismatic vocal techniques used in repertoire from Bulgaria and eastern Georgia. Singers will be presented with a variety of different songs and exercises that seek to develop greater vocal agility and expression, and a deeper intimacy with one’s individual vocal apparatus. Familiarity with Bulgarian and Georgian music is a plus, but not mandatory. We ask that interested participants have strong, adept singing voices; be able to maintain pitch and learn by ear.
The cost of the workshop is $30 to $50 sliding scale. Enrollment is limited; early registration is encouraged.
