Chanson intensive - with Annette Postel

Chanson interpretation in voice and role

I am set on love from head to toe! - The esprit and wit of these songs, but also their depth and expressiveness, still fascinate today. If you feel like working on a modern cabaret song, a Kreisler couplet, a singer-songwriter piece, a challenging hit song or even a song you have written yourself, this course is also for you. Together we will go in search of your voice and your personal interpretation. The course offers vocal instruction, accompaniment, and interpretive and acting lessons.

One to two pieces and a substitute piece should be perfectly prepared. Performance dresses and accessories matching the songs should please be brought for the final concert.

Please send the sheet music - written out and in the desired key - to info@landesmusikakademie.de at least 14 days before the beginning of the course for forwarding to the pianist.
