The IVC is very much concerned with the development and training of vocal talent and is therefore organising master classes in various specific areas of vocal art. The first IVC Summer School takes place from 5 – 10 September 2011 and will be devoted to bel canto technique: this forms the basis for correct and healthy use of the voice and is obligatory for the development of a flexible and expressive singing style.
The IVC is delighted to announce that two pre-eminent international singers will be this year’s masters: soprano Nelly Miricioiu and tenor William Matteuzzi. Nelly Miricioiu won the IVC’s Prize of the City of ‘s-Hertogenbosch (first prize) in 1979. Conductor David Parry, who is very specialized in operas from the bel canto period in the 19th century, will also come to ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The three masters will be assisted by leading bel canto pianist and coach Luca Gorla.
The IVC now makes it possible for young singers at the highest level to benefit from a week of intensive work with experts in the field.
