Music Academy’s Masterclass Sampler Rescheduled for Thursday

The Music Academy of the West will present its 2008 masterclass sampler at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The event had been scheduled to take place last Wednesday but was canceled because of a power outage.

Featuring violinist Zvi Zeitlin and pianists Jerome Lowenthal and Warren Jones, each an academy faculty member, the event will be in the Music Academy’s newly renovated Hahn Hall. Jones, who directs the academy’s vocal piano and interpretation program, will devote his segment to working with Academy Voice Fellows. Tickets are $18.

The masterclass concept is simple. An Academy Fellow performs before an audience, a teacher critiques the performance and the Fellow refines his or her performance accordingly. For Fellows, the masterclass combines the rigors of learning with the intensity of public performance. For audience members, the masterclass provides intimate insight into the subtleties of great music-making. The Music Academy offers more than 100 public masterclasses each summer, many of them free. Vocal and solo piano classes are offered as discounted series with reserved seating.

For tickets, call 805.969.8787. Click here for more information.

Tim Dougherty is the communications manager for Music Academy of the West.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
