Home-Yarmouth High School Choral Music
Free Vocal Masterclass: On April 19, from 3-6pm, the Student NATS chapter from the University of Southern Maine is hosting a public vocal masterclass. We envision this not only as a great learning opportunity for voice students, but also as a way to network with local teachers and students from the community. The event will include a voice masterclass with Internationally acclaimed soprano Dr. Malinda Haslett (head of the voice department at USM) followed by a reception. We would like to encourage all teachers and students to come and learn about the USM School of Music, the NATS organization, and the current students and faculty at USM. This event will be held in Corthell Hall on the USM Gorham campus. Entry is free of charge! You do not have to be a NATS member to participate, we welcome all music lovers and practitioners.
