Example text

Showcases In the early days of vaudeville, the audience booed, hissed, and threw vegetables at the entertainer if they didn’t like the act. Someone backstage would administer the final blow by dragging the entertainer off the stage with a big hook. Today, the showcase stage is tough, like the stages of vaudeville. And even though we’re too civilized for vegetables and hooks, the audience still determines each performer’s fate. Every performance is a showcase, and the next project and connection depend on the previous performance.

An opera singer usually speaks more than one language and should be familiar with several others. Dance, acting, and other theater skills are also necessary. Opera workshops, vocal ensemble, and solo recitals are all part of the preparation for a career in opera. Female singers are classified as soprano, mezzo-soprano, and contralto. Men are classified as countertenor, tenor, baritone, and bass (basso). Further classifications are coloratura, lyric, spinto, robusto, dramatic, and basso profundo.

Org. The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) is an organization made up of approximately fifty-eight hundred voice teachers throughout the country. Rules for joining NATS are strict, and its teacher members adhere to a code of ethics. NATS sponsors an artists’ competition that awards a $10,000 first prize and thirteen additional prizes for finalists and semifinalists. An applicant may or may not be a professional, but he or she must have studied with a NATS teacher for at least two years.
