At the end of August and beginning of September, Jeanie attended the Pan European Voice Conference (PEVOC#12) in Ghent, Belgium, where she presented a workshop on belting. The conference attracts participants from Europe and a few others from South America, Asia and the USA (10 people from the United States were there). She has presented at past conferences in London, Florence and Prague. Prior to the conference she and husband Jerry enjoyed Ghent and Bruges, and after the conference visited Brussels. Next was London where she presented Somatic Voicework™ for 55 participants in London at Arts Education, a college in Chiswick. She was able to visit with colleague and friend Mark Meylan, a noted singing teacher in the West End, and to connect again with others in London in the voice community.

Next up later this month is a visit to the DC/Baltimore area to do a Teacher Support Group and Teacher Training Day with Somatic Voicework™ teachers. There is also an open evening for those new to the work.
Plans are in the works for a return to Brazil and Australia and a possible return to London in 2018. Jeanie is also busy planning the 2018 residency for the LoVetri Institute next summer at Baldwin Wallace University. After this year’s great success, she is eagerly looking forward to year two with new guest faculty. The dates will be July 21-29, 2018, so mark your calendars and save the date.
This month, we are so lucky to feature an interview with Somatic Voicework™ faculty, Jamie Leonhart. Jamie will be presenting her original show, ESTUARY: An Artist/Mother Story.
