Description

Neon, parachute pants, power ballads, and mix tapes - the 1980's was an iconic decade.  And what was happening on Broadway?  Just a few amazing shows like Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Chess, Miss Saigon, Cats, 42nd Street, Dreamgirls, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George, ...and so many more!  

Students aged 13 -18 are invited to explore a decade of musicals in one week!  We'll keep the "crafts" to a minimum and instead work on our Vocal Craft using healthy technique and emotional expression to stretch the voice into contrasting genres and styles.  We’ll enjoy songs from the blockbuster productions and deep-dives into the lesser-known gems, culminating in an 80's-centric Vocal Showcase on our last day.

 

Counselor:


Jed da Roza

As a voice teacher for 20 years, I place emphasis on healthy vocal technique serving the needs of authentic expression. This enables me to work with a variety of styles, e.g. pop, rock, musical theatre, opera, etc. My purpose in teaching is to empower singers to boldly tell their story. As a music director of 40+ productions, some of my favorites include The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, Guys and Dolls, West Side Story, Joseph..., Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misérables, Rent, Aida, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Hairspray, Bat Boy, Little Women, Legally Blonde, and In the Heights. My purpose in music directing is to guide the illusion that the performers are creating the music. As a performer, some of my favorite roles include the Director (‘Twas the Opening Night Before Christmas), Queen Victoria (Little Princess), Mr. Laurence (Little Women), Doug Panch (...Spelling Bee), Dr. Parker (​Bat Boy), Ugly (Honk!), the Mad Hatter and Captain Hook (Wish Upon a Star), Joseph (Joseph...), and the chorus of several operas. My purpose in performing is to live truthfully in imaginary circumstances. I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I studied voice with Leroy Kromm, diction with Marcie Stapp, and acting with Milissa Carey. I have also studied conducting with Judith Clurman (a student of Leonard Bernstein) and voice with Sarah Franklin, Richard Nickol (SF Academy for the Performing Arts), and Stephen Smith (Northwestern, formerly at Juilliard). My purpose is to empower people to experience something beyond what they already know.
