Comprehensive Orchestral Audition Preparation

Online Concert and Event Listings of the Week – 20 August

Designed to dramatically advance the skills you need to play your best under pressure in the unpredictable world of orchestral auditions. COAP is the only audition preparation intensive that combines continuous one-on-one feedback at the highest level with an energizing studio dynamic in one course.

Auditions require technical competency, instrumental athleticism, ability to sound beautiful and effortless under intense pressure, laser focus, calm mind, and preparation for unexpected hurdles. Costs of airfare, hotels, meals, lessons, cancelled work, and other lost performance opportunities mean you want to maximize your potential for success when committing to an audition.

COAP will give you the experiential training needed to succeed at your audition while working with your existing schedule.

Our unique program offers the highest level of one-on-one personal feedback from musicians who have successfully navigated the audition process in front of and behind the screen. We fully utilize a highly energized studio-like environment providing feedback through numerous peer trials that will illustrate your current and potential capabilities. Demonstrating how implementing and consolidating the feedback you receive from COAP teachers and peers will prepare you for the rigorous audition process.

Visit the COAP website for registration information.

DWB (Driving While Black)

Online Concert and Event Listings of the Week – 7 May

Driving While Black

Dwb is the premiere filmed version of the opera by the same name Susan Kander and Roberta Gumbel. Presented by UrbanArias, now celebrating its 10th anniversary. UrbanArias is an opera company dedicated to producing short – 90 minutes or less – contemporary operas.

A solo chamber opera, dwb derives much of its power from the voice of soprano Karen Slack, starring as the various mothers. Slack, who has sung with the Metropolitan Opera and Washington National Opera, among other prestigious opera houses, moves easily from lyric to dramatic sounds and offers theatrical skills to boot.

A two-musician ensemble – composed of cellist Rosanna Butterfield and percussionist Eric Plewinski – is conducted by Robert Wood. Known as an innovator in opera, Wood founded UrbanArias in 2009.

Du’Bois A’keen directed and choreographed the film; Camry A’Keen was the creative director. Both have drawn on their extensive operatic, choreographic, and film backgrounds to bring elements of modern dance and music video production.

Tickets are $15 and allow unlimited viewing through October 31.
