This weekend I have had the privilege of participating in countertenor Drew Minter's guest teaching residency at the Peabody Conservatory! Friday and Saturday were packed with sessions, including workshops focusing on our upcoming production of Claudio Monteverdi's opera L'incoronazione di Poppea, in which I am singing the role of Nutrice. I also sang an excerpt from Bach Cantata "Gott soll allein mein Herze haben" BWV 169 for Mr. Minter's afternoon aria masterclass.
I am honored to have had the chance to work with this amazing artist! I learned a great deal watching him work with my colleagues, especially those who share my range and repertoire. Mr. Minter gave me some great ideas for rep to start working on and I'm looking forward to tackling the books! I recorded the aria session, and I'm looking forward to studying and listening to it over the next few days to gain some ground and make some progress! I can't wait to hear how our production of Poppea comes together, and I'll be curious to hear when little touches of Minter's teaching come out in the voices. All in all, another great Peabody experience!
