In a continuation of student and faculty exchanges with the Music Academy of Zagreb, IUP Music Department vocal students will have the chance to work with Professor Hansell-Bakić on March 22 and 23, 2010.
Along with her master class on Monday, March 22, from 12:20 to 5:30 p.m. in the Gorell Recital Hall, Professor Bakić will work with the singers in their diction classes and private lessons on standard vocal repertoire as well as songs in Croatian.
This particular faculty visit was initiated by the March 2009 exchange where Drs. Hastings and Chepaitis were invited by the Zagreb Conservatory to give master classes and performances. Professor Bakić is the voice teacher of Nela Sariç, one of last Fall semester’s music exchange students from Croatia. The master class on March 22 will be open to the public.
