Cheek to Cheek: a Benefit Cabaret

  • Sabina Balsamo, Soprano
  • Dawna Rae Warren, Soprano
  • Jason Aquila, collaborative pianist

Come enjoy an evening of jazz standards and Broadway tunes! From Edith Piaf to Irving Berlin!

Dawna Rae Warren and Sabina Balsamo are Vocal Performance students at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music. This is a fundraiser jazz cabaret for the tuition and expenses at the Italian summer opera training program, Accademia Lorenzo Malfatti di Lucca!

About Accademia Lorenzo Malfatti di Lucca:

Participants will work with vocal and acting coaches such as: Benjamin Smith (Director of Opera at University of Memphis), Barbara Paver (Associate Professor of Voice at Rice University), Dean Williamson (Music Director of Nashville Opera), Fábio Bezuti (Collaborative Pianist and Vocal Coach at Manhattan School of Music), and other prominent members of the opera community. This summer program will allow participants to spend June 29- July 26, 2017 in Italy, immersed in the language with weekly language and dictions courses, two 45-minute private voice lessons per week, and weekly acting courses, dramatic and vocal coachings, and weekly master classes with the faculty and other guest clinicians.

In addition to developing language, acting, and vocal abilities, participants also make connections with leading industry artists and teachers who can be instrumental in securing future professional employment.

This summer program provides a process-based curriculum with opportunities to perform in 4 recitals around Italy gaining hands-on performance experience that will hone our craft and help us prepare for upcoming graduate school auditions in the fall semester of 2017.

All donations and proceeds will directly support funding this wonderful opportunity.
