Professor Catherine Fagiolo will host a voice clinic that will provide ARC students with an opportunity to get critiqued by a professional vocal coach on Friday.

The free voice is a workshop clinic offering students an opportunity to perform and get feedback on their performance.

“Its an opportunity for singers to present their songs so they can get feedback on how to make their performance better,” said Fagiolo.

Fagiolo will be accompanying the singers on the piano as they perform their individual solo pieces.

“It’s important for students to have an opportunity to practice performing because that’s how you learn to perform,” Fagiolo said.

By performing in front of an audience, singers can build up their confidence and make their performances better.

Vocal and choir students are eligible to participate in the solo singing audition performances. Students across the campus can also participate in singing.

“We’re working on art songs, such as concert music, solo vocal music and musical theater songs in any language,” Fagiolo said.“It’s an enhancement to the voice classes to expand their experience. When you sing by yourself, you learn things about singing that you don’t learn when you’re standing in a choir rehearsal.”

Students and guests from the community are welcome to participate in the event and observe the voice clinic speaker and the auditions.

The Voice Clinic will take place on Friday, Nov. 18, from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.  

The event will be held in the ARC Music Department, room 547. There is free parking for this event in parking lot D at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and College Oak Drive.
