This January, you’re headed back to Toowoomba, Australia with Jeanie LoVetri for the first LoVetri Institute for Somatic Voicework™ in Australia, what can we expect from this institute?
This year is particularly exciting, as it is the second time Jeanie is presenting her full course in Australia. The faculty has a great chemistry and we each bring a different skill set to the table to support Jeanie’s work. Heather Keens is joining us this year and will be giving a Masterclass in Music Theater and Melissa Forbes and I will both be present on jazz and pop. We have a lot of repeat attendees this year, as well as friends, colleagues and students of former grads, so we’re going to have a lot of enthusiastic participants!
You’re also planning an Australian tour, can you tell us more details about that?
I will be performing shows in Toowoomba, Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and debuting in Melbourne playing two shows at Paris Cat and one at Jazz Lab. It is important for me to try and make music wherever I go, so I reached out to get a few gigs booked. I had no idea I’d have such an enthusiastic response, so I have a full week long tour set up, as well as radio and print media interviews and articles. I can’t wait to work with some Aussie musicians! [Read more…] about Spotlight on Brenda Earle Stokes
