Score Reading: Aria Jukebox

Saturday, February 25, 2017 11:00 AM

Presented by Naomi Barrettara
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM and 2:00 – 3:30 PM
Two-session registration $50 public / $46 Guild members & students (not available singly)

Guild staff member Naomi Barrettara covers basic score reading skills to help newcomers feel comfortable diving into the world of reading music and provides a review of core skills for Crash Course regulars.

Arias in opera can take many different shapes—from dramatic declarations of love to ornamented mad scenes to mournful farewells and laments. This two-part score-reading study day is dedicated to exploring the music of some of this season’s greatest arias, covering a variety of styles, forms, and composers. Learn more about the history and evolution of aria structure, musical conventions, and types of singing as we traverse the 2016–17 Met repertoire. Participants will be provided with annotated piano-vocal scores for all excerpts covered in the class. Beginner-level ability to read music is recommended.

Please note that Student pricing is available to full-time students with valid identification.

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
