Repertoire assignments: spring

Hi folks,

Following are your repertoire assignments for the spring semester. Please listen to them ASAP and let me know if something doesn't appeal to you! I'm always happy to find other options for you, but I will not be near my library after Friday of this week.

Please get the music to your piece(s) over break: preferably buy the book so you have a collection you are building. You should own the music you sing, rather than simply a bunch of photocopies, which are illegal anyway. Send a PDF to Dr. Steele so that he is ready to go that first week as well.

Remember also to get me your schedules NO LATER THAN January 3, as I will be at a workshop right up until the night before classes.

As always, I am only an email or text or phone call away. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am happy to help!

Happy break, take care of yourselves, and enjoy some well-earned relaxation.

-Dr. Kris

Eric: How willing my paternal love (Handel) or Gia il sole dal Gange (from your Italian aria book)
Mallory: Au bord de l'eau (Fauré)
Peyton: Amarilli, mia bella or Pur dicesti, o bocca bella (from your Italian aria book)
Camilla: Lasciatemi morire (from your Italian aria book)
Jenn: Tu lo sai (from your Italian aria book)
Beau: another Schubert of your choice; Handel aria
Addie: Star vicino or O cessate di piagarmi (from your Italian aria book)
Briana: Das Veilchen (Mozart song)
Michael: another Quilter of your choice; another Schubert if you wish

Kristin: Mi tradi from Mozart's Don Giovanni
Madison: Deh vieni, non tardar from Figaro (Mozart)

Jury sheets available

Dear students,

Congratulations on your juries! I have your comment sheet available, and would prefer to discuss them rather than just emailing them to you. This prevents any possible confusion, and often generates useful discussion.

If you'd like to meet in the next week, send me an email. I'm also happy to do this over a phone call.

In the meantime, enjoy some well-deserved rest!

Spring registration

Hi folks,

All overrides have been entered for spring voice lessons. You should be able to register, but if you have trouble, please email me.

Meanwhile, please send me your schedule NO LATER THAN January 2. I will be out of town from January 3-8, and will need to set the spring schedule before I leave.

Thanks!

Voice Studio Listening

Folks,

Remember to post your listening to your Google doc no later than 9am on jury day. Most have you have already done it; just be sure you've posted it. I will not email to remind you or ask if you've done it after the fact. If it's not posted in time, you won't get credit. Just a friendly reminder!
