SUM UP has been co-created with some of the finest and internationally known artists with a specific goal of offering a program of the highest level to young artists, as well as to those who have already obtained and displayed their knowledge in Slovenia and around the globe. We want to offer all the participants and artists a first-rate possibility to study and perform musical repertoire, so they can prepare for audition process with quality or simply to expand their knowledge. Due to the specific orientation of Masterclass courses, the participants usually receive knowledge only from a specific field of operatic art, such as vocal technique, etc., but our guide is to offer singers a wider range of information that will improve the abilities necessary for the quality performance of opera art. Therefore, in addition to working closely on classical singing with superb mentors, participants will also receive Acting lessons as well as Stage movement lessons given by field experts.
We are placing great emphasis on the Final Concert of Masterclass Specific where all the attendees will have a chance to show the newly gained knowledge of this masterclass. The concert will not only be of great importance for the participants but it will also represent a possibility for wider audience to hear talented artists, who may lack a range of opportunities to present themselves autonomously.
Sum-up Masterclass offers participants unique experience, that differs from traditional study process. We guaranty that each individual will obtain as much as possible, therefore we offer excellent accompanists, quality rehearsal halls, option of passive participation, video footage of masterclass as well as of the final concert. Besides artistic abilities, Masterclass provides participants with advanced comprehension for development of their own careers in modern world. Furthermore, it helps them transition from student into professional part of life and opens possibilities for competitiveness in the market.
MUSICAL THEATRE MASTERCLASS
Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Although musical theatre overlaps with other theatrical forms like opera and dance, it may be distinguished by the equal importance given to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements. Since the early 20th century, musical theatre stage works have generally been called, simply, musicals. (*from wiki)
The program is designed for individuals with singing and movement abilities who may or may not have prior experience on a musical theatre stage. The following courses allow participants to get an introduction to the integral skills required for success in this field and learn how to prepare themselves for the varied demands of a musical theatre career.
The Masterclass of Musical Theatre will be Cabaret-theme based. Through the songs “Wilkommen“, “Maybe this time” and “Cabaret” we will focus primarily on singing and acting interpretation, musical style and various ways of performing. We will search for an individual approach to songs and how to combine different approaches into a group act.
Musical theatre workshop will be held by an expert Maja Pihler – Bilbi and accompanied by Živa Horvat.
