Masterclass: The Art of Accompaniment

Gorell Recital Hall, Second Floor Sutton Hall

The campus and community is invited by the IUP Department of Music to observe expert instructor and coach Jan Halmes in a free masterclass that will feature student vocalists and their accompanists.  A dedicated accompanist since the age of 12, Halmes has studied Art Song with masters such as Hans Hotter, Elly Amling, Otto Edelmann and Walter Berry.  She also has traveled and performed extensively in Europe and China as an accompanist for choral groups and soloists.  In a master class, all the students (and often audience members) watch and listen as the master works with each of the performers.  The student soloist and his/her piano accompanist usually perform a single piece which they have prepared, and the master will give them advice, often including anecdotes about the composer, demonstrations of how to perform certain passages, and corrections of common errors. The student is then usually expected to perform the piece again, in light of the master's comments.

Free Admission.
