LA VOCE ARTISTICA 2017
XI Edition – Ravenna 26 – 29 ottobre 2017
Here we are with the programme of our 11th edition of La Voce Artistica conference.
As you would remember, the conference was born from an idea of Franco Fussi in 1999, as a biennal experience unique of its kind. Drawing inspiration from La Voce Artistica, these events raised more and more interest towards voice education and professional care.
Once again this year, we are proud and excited to announce a great selection of speakers and artists, and we are confident that we will keep up with the quality level achieved in the previous edition. And this year again, as usual, the conference will be held at Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna from October 26th to October 29th.
Friday will start with a long section on singers’ health problems, from how to manage menopause, to obesity and gastroesophageal reflux, the effects of pollution on vocal health, the side effects of medicines normally used by singers, to conclude with the presentation of some devices for vocal warm-up. Speakers will be phoniatricians and teachers from Italy, Mexico and the USA.
In the afternoon, we will offer you a relaxing moment in which we will interview few artists (Karima, Alessio Boni e Pietro Ghislandi) on the subject of interpretation and imitation. The following session will be on scat, with Gegè Telesforo and Maria Pia De Vito. We also succeeded in having with us two amazing emerging vocalists from the Indian vocal culture, who attained a totally new vocal mix by merging Indian vocality with jazz and beat-box.
Friday will terminate with an exciting session on the harmonic singing in the East and in the West, with two eminent representatives of the genre: Tran Quang Hai and Anna Maria Hefele.
Anna Maria & Tran Quang Hai
Lisa Angelillo will delight us over our social dinner with her show devoted to great female stars of the past.
Saturday will start with a section on specific diagnostic issues, like emergency problems in singing, problems of infant choirs, diagnosis of dysodias and management of post-surgery recovery. The social role of music and singing will be dealt with in a session titled “The hidden keys of the voice”, with group experiences made by people with Down syndrome, oncological patients and detainees.
During the afternoon, a practical session by Michel Cerroni, vocal coach of the first edition of Notre-Dame de Paris, will be devoted to theatre music.
A broad session focusing on a cappella singing will follow, held by speakers such as Fausto Caravati, Anna Simioni, Ciro Caravano and a practical part with the great ensemble The Slix, from Germany. In the evening, this a cappella vocal group will challenge the Italian Neri Per Caso in an exciting duel of notes and harmonizations.
The meaning and practice of modern singing will open the Sunday morning session with the participation of, among others, Franco Mussida and Red Ronnie, and with a sub-session on ear-monitors and on the importance of sound technicians. The following session will focus on some peculiarities of speech therapy rehabilitation in singing.
In the afternoon, we will learn about contemporary cultured vocality in ancient and modern singing, with artists such as John De Leo and Nicholas Isherwood.
To conclude, an animated final session on “Voice effect”, on the theme of voice effects and technology for the voice.
As usual, great stuff! We look forward to having you here. Make your reservation in advance!
