Highlights of May included a great trip to Boston to work with the Somatic Voicework™ teachers in New England. We had a great opening night at New England Conservatory courtesy of Dominique Eade, a Teacher Training Day on Saturday at the home of Celia Slattery and a Teacher Support Group at Wheaton College courtesy of Joanne Mouradjian. As always, there was a great exchange of information between the teachers and on Sunday with the students. Jeanie does these twice a year in New England, in Washington/DC/Baltimore and, new this year, in Michigan. If you would like a weekend in your area, you need at least 10 people who have done Somatic Voicework™ training (level one).

At the end of May Jeanie was off to The Voice Foundation Symposium: Care of the Professional Voice in Philadelphia to enjoy her 40th year of consecutive attendance. She is now on the Advisory Board, an adjudicator of the Best Student Award, a Presentation Coach, and this year was also a section chair of the Pedagogy papers. Additionally, she sang at the Gala in front of opera bass-baritone Simon Estes and tenor George Shirley and many of the doctors and scientists who have been her colleagues, mentors and friends for decades. Several Somatic Voicework™ teachers there in attendance included Benjamin Czarnota, Amanda Chmela, Ric Ryder and faculty of the upcoming training at Baldwin Wallace, Speech Pathologist, Jan Potter Reed. She was able to visit with friends from Europe and South America and all parts of the USA and Canada. If you have never been, Jeanie encourages you to attend next year.
We are now preparing for our LoVetri Institute for Somatic Voicework™ at Baldwin Wallace University in July.
