The Voice Symposium is postponed to 2021. Carol Mendelsohn and Saule Ryan are offering a replacement workshop from July 1-July 5, 2020: “The Voice That Touches”.

Complementary and Contrasting: looking closer at three approaches to Voice training through practice and reflection: Roy Hart Voice Work, Estill Voice Training and Fitzmaurice Voicework. Open to APG students and practitioners/students of the Voice

Roy Hart: Directed by Carol Mendelsohn, Saule Ryan with Kevin Crawford

Fitzmaurice Voicework: Helena Walsh*, Director of the Fitzmaurice Voicework Community in Europe

Estill Voice Training: Tilde Van Haaster*, Certified Estill Master Teacher; Holland

We believe it is important to see the Roy Hart work in relation to other voice training practices across the world. This summer’s APG will be in the form of a symposium open both to current APG students and to all voice practitioners/students interested in discovering the intersections of these three Voice Training approaches. We are happy to offer Malerargues and the C.A.I.R.H. as a privileged space to explore the links between these three different approaches.

The nine days will be divided into two four-day sessions with a half-day off the morning of day 5.

The mornings will offer: physical and vocal warm ups (shared by the five teachers) leading into Roy Hart voice work in two groups led by either: Carol, Kevin or Saule.

In the afternoons: there will be two groups; one working with Helena and the other with Tilde; each group will experience both approaches.

These classes will be followed by presentations, panels, round tables and discussions.
