On Wednesday night, Professor Julia Faulkner worked with the Madison Opera High School Apprentices in a masterclass at UW-Madison. It was a fantastic evening for everyone involved and truly an invaluable experience for our apprentices. Professor Faulkner (who just so happens to be our Mrs. Grose in The Turn of the Screw and Mary in The Flying Dutchman next season) had the young singers doing all sorts of exercises, and she worked in detail with them on everything from breath control to managing nerves to German translation. The night ended with Julia recounting her extraordinary career and answering questions about the college audition process.
