HAPPY 2016!

We begin the New Year with new projects, lessons, workshops and seminars.

Long live the THEATRE! Long live PERFORMING ARTISTS!

The actor and playwright Moni Ovadia, our dear friend, has been appointed artistic director for the 2016 theater season of the Teatro Margherita of
Caltanissetta!

The year 2015 was highlighted by several new and interesting experiences, with singers and actors from all over the world.

In July,
conductor and Rossini expert Alberto Zedda invited us to give a seminar at the Pesaro Rossini Festival, to singers from 30 different nations.
It was inspiring to talk with them and to answer their questions about singing. The experience of creating an open dialogue with these singers
has motivated us to plan more seminars and lectures for the near future.

zedda e allievi

M° Zedda is brilliant, humble, and amazingly dynamic at age eighty-seven!
He once said: "Sometimes people ask me if I take cocaine, but it is music that gives me my strength." We agree.

In October
we gave a voice seminar for Director Peter Stein as part of his intense workshops on Harold Pinter, "Lavorando su Pinter"
Intense, interesting and fun, and it is always wonderful spending time with our student and friend, actress Maddalena Crippa, Peter's partner on stage and in life. Their country estate, San Pancrazio, in Umbria, is beautiful and green and refreshing.

We have many wonderful students from around the world.
One of them is our friend, Moni Ovadia, who spent precious time with us at NVS.

We hope to see him often in this coming year.

NEWSLETTER Vol. 2 Issue 1      January 2009

Dear Friends,

We DO have NEWS! Barbara Lee, Congressional Representative from the 9th District, California, has agreed to carry the nomination of Pete Seeger for the Nobel Peace Prize.

They want us to supply specific examples of how Pete participated in work for Peace, social justice, and environmental movements. Send any data you have even if it seems small in consideration to what most of us know of Pete’s long and committed work.

The deadline for the letter of nomination is Feb 1st, so they need data within the next few day, indeed the next few hours.  Send to:

Pete Seeger Nomination

Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-09)
1301 Clay St., Ste. 1000-N
Oakland, CA 94612
510-763-0370 ext. 16
510-763-6538 (fax)
Wayne dointern23.ca09@mail.house.gov

The petition has grown to over 21 thousand signatures. Go to our web site at www.nobelprize4pete.org to see what moving and sincere comments people have made about how Pete opened their consciousness in so many ways. I want to keep this petition open until the end of the year so that the final document will be sent to the Smithsonian Institution, or where ever Pete’s archives will eventually be housed, as a document for posterity.

That again brings me to emphasis that this campaign is not to make a hero of Pete. It has to do with creativity and community. Its meaning has to do with understanding that the arts are not frivolity, not a means to fame or entertainment, but for deepening the meaning of civilization. The “music biz” has distorted our interpretation of culture and this campaign is one effort to correct it!

The campaign has spread in exciting ways. Marie Goonan, an activist in Melbourne, Australia, suggested that May 3, 2009, Pete’s 90th birthday, be designated as “For Pete’s Sake, Sing!” with concerts coordinated around the world. She is producing a concert in Melbourne, another is being planned in Copenhagen, Denmark, and several are planned in the US of A. Big production is not the issue: just imagine what a thrill it would be to know that thousands of people around the world are coming together on one day to join voices for peace, justice, the environment, and honor to a model of personal integrity.

VOICE ENCOUNTERS
Know your voice.
For singers and actors, for anyone interested in the voice as an integral part of the self.

We are all musical beings. We need melodies and choruses, songs and opera. Balanced singing positively affects the nervous system and invigorates and mind and body.

Understanding balance:
Effortless, relaxed breathing. Fundamental Tone, what it is, how we produce it. Easy words.

This lab is for everyone interested in discovering, through the inevitable evolutionary process that is an integral part of this study: the true nature of their own voices.
Participants will experience the joy of intoning and singing with others.

“FAQs” Questions and answers. Problem solving.
Open dialogue in order to answer any and all questions about the voice.

LABORATORIO
VOCAL BALANCE Brilla-PaglinTM for ACTORS

In order to have a spontaneous and natural stage presence as an actor, you must have a balanced and stable voice.  You must know your voice. You must love your voice.
After a thorough assessment of natural abilities, innate (and sometimes hidden) qualities of voice, talent, temperament and desires, participants are guided to an immediate and intimate meeting with their voices, in order to gain vocal awareness, self awareness and discover the art of listening.

  1.  “Hearing” and “Listening”.
  2.  Ease and simplicity of breathing. Relaxation.
  3. Fundamental Tone, for a beautiful, flowing, sonorous voice 
  4. Vibration and resonance: the balance between them. Tone.
  5. Phonetics. Clear and comfortable diction on every pitch of the voice
  6. Vocal BalancetM: breath, tone and word.
  7. Vocal identity

One full scholarship, based on outstanding ability and promise, will be awarded.
No age limit. Email us for details.

This new approach introduces singers to:
A full and spontaneous vocal instrument

  • Breath: simple, easy, effective
  • The elements of a sonorous voice (vibration and resonance) from the inside out and chiaro-scuro balanced tone
  • Delicate and precise work on the various components of diction in singing in order to acquire clear, comfortable, easy and clear pronunciation while singing on any pitch of the voice.
  • Understanding how Vocal Training applies to opera and art song repertoire including recitative and recitar cantando.

The Voice Specialists in charge of this course will clarify any questions regarding voice category and classification and the proper opera repertoire for every participant.

VOCAL WORKSHOP for ALL SINGERS
We only have one instrument. The physiology of the voice is the same for everyone, no matter the style of singing.

Singers learn an organic and natural approach to the voice that permits each singer to  face different situations and explore different vocal styles, without modifying vocal emission or changing technical approach.

Proper use of the voice allows everyone to acquire vocal equilibrium that respects body, personality and soul of the singer. This allows for full and satisfying exploration of your vocal potential.

“FAQs” Questions and answers. Problem solving.
Open dialogue in order to answer any and all questions about the voice.

The workshops will be held in a relaxed and friendly environment, ideal for study.
NVS has chosen several pleasant and comfortable accommodation options in the area for the participants of the course.

VOCAL STUDIES TODAY

Many years of personal experience have shown us that singers are often enthusiastic about their vocal studies at first, and then, after working hard on their voices and beginning their careers, they find that they are uncomfortable with some aspect of their singing or that something that seemed to work for a time is no longer effective. They begin looking around for more instruction.

Many times a singer will go to a new teacher, hoping for that easy top or better breathing or a freer tone. The voice teacher may recommend “starting all over again”, which usually does not work. Some vocal instructors promise instant results and may even produce them, as they teach students to employ stratagems and look for “short cuts”, force their bodies and maltreat their voices in order to get out higher, or lower, and always louder, louder notes. In general this is nothing more than supplying the singer with a few tricks in bits and pieces that prove to be nothing more than patchwork and are temporary at best. “Vocal placement” is often invasive, even abusive to the physiology of the voice and the personality of the individual, and the results can be devastating.

The study of voice today does not often involve true understanding of vocal culture. Voice is approached in a sometimes arbitrary and erratic manner. Pre-packaged recipes, often in the form of "warm up exercises" and "vocalises" are not only acceptable, they are expected.

This terrible situation in vocal studies has left many unhappy, wary, confused and cynical singers in its wake.

“No one is perfect” and “no sense in being a ‘purist’” is the attitude used to cover up for the fact that singers are not getting the vocal education they deserve and so fall short of the requirements in a score.

And the pattern continues.

It is absolutely essential that the voice trainer be able to HEAR AND SEE what is even slightly incorrect or potentially harmful to the singer, know how to meticulously and thoroughly educate, re-educate and repair voices, with complete respect for the rules of physiology and acoustics. Vocal studies should not have to be repeated.
