You know who you are... you love to sing! You sing in the shower, in the privacy of your car, on hikes in the woods. Now you can learn how to share your voice with those around you by registering for Juneau Jazz & Classics' annual cabaret workshop with jazz pianist and vocal coach, Barney McClure.
The six day workshop begins on Sunday, Oct. 20 and ends with cabaret performances on Friday, Oct. 25 at the JACC. In between, participants select a song they'd like to sing, practice it nightly, and also in a private session with Barney. Formal vocal training isn't necessary; Barney excels at working with singers of all levels. He puts everyone at ease, helps with song selection and delivery, and creates an arrangement for each student that's fun to sing.
The cost is $150 ($100 for students) and includes: five evening classes, a half-hour private session with Barney, and rehearsal time... all in preparation for the grand finalé on the 25th at 7 p.m. (for which you'll also receive one complimentary ticket for a family member or friend to use).
According to Jazz & Classics' Linda Rosenthal, the annual workshop is extremely popular and has limited space. She suggests signing up early, if possible. More information and tickets are available www.jazzandclassics.org or by calling: 463-3378. Tickets will also be available at the JACC and Hearthside Books.
