Mr. Griffeath recently performed the roles of Ferrando in Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, Gherardo in Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, Fenton in Verdi's Falstaff, and Nanki Poo in Gilbert and
Sullivan's The Mikado.
All skill levels are welcome to this event. There is no cost for this Master Class, and it is open to the public. The voice instructors of MCC-Blue River will host it, and Robin Griffeath will be the clinician. Eight participants will perform one song each. The master class is not for credit nor is it a class. It’s a two hour hands-on seminar.
The audience for this event will be made quite welcome and will take away new insights on vocal performance posture and body usage.
