Join Caitlin and Chelsea as they explore ways to analyze and interpret songs. They will also be introducing helpful practice and rehearsal techniques. Please bring your music book as you may be asked to perform a piece.

Caitlin Felsman, mezzo-soprano, has been praised for her “velvety low register” and “bright, ringing top” [Boston Music Intelligencer]. She is a dynamic, passionate performer, equally at home on the opera stage and in intimate recital venues. Caitlin performs frequently with Opera on Tap Boston, whose mission is to bringing classical music to non-traditional performance spaces. Caitlin is based in the Boston area and studies with soprano Barbara Quintiliani.

Chelsea Whitaker is a collaborative pianist based in the Boston area, enjoying a diverse career including art song, opera, musical theatre, and chamber work in North America and Europe. Her most recent work includes vocal coaching at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute; a staff pianist position in the voice department at Boston University; teaching fellowships at New England Conservatory in the voice and piano departments; and a New York City debut performance at Merkin Hall in collaboration with Stephanie Blythe, Alan Louis Smith, and Steven Carroll. Chelsea currently studies under Cameron Stowe and Jonathan Feldman at New England Conservatory, where she is completing her DMA degree in Collaborative Piano.

After the Workshop please join us at Canción/Canção: An evening of Spanish and Portuguese Song to watch Caitlin and Chelsea perform!
