About This Activity

Description

This class, designed for intermediate to advanced level performers, will address technical, stylistic and conceptual issues in order to deepen participants' musical understanding and provide an artistic context to their repertoire. Practice techniques, performance preparation and learning to "own the stage" will also be addressed. The seminar will be conducted in the format of a masterclass. All active participants will be coached by Ya-Fei Chuang and at least once a semester by one of two distinguished guest artists. Past guests include world-renowned music scholar Christoph Wolff from Harvard University, Pulitzer Prize winning composer Yehudi Wyner, and concert pianists/piano professors such as Jonathan Bass, Bruce Brubaker, David Deveau, Robert Levin, Max Levinson, Michael Lewin, Victor Rosenbaum, Sergey Schepkin. The seminar will culminate in a public concert by all active participants, at the end of each semester in NEC's Williams Hall.


An audition is required for active participants: please call 617-585-1701 to schedule an audition. Audition repertoire should consist of at least two contrasting styles of the candidate's choice, with score or by memory. Performers registered for the previous year may re-audition or use the spring concert as their audition. Do not proceed with registration unless you have auditioned and/or been accepted into this class.
