Tulane is having a vocal arts celebration this weekend!

Here’s the schedule. I hope some of you can attend some part of the event. Because one of the tricks of playing piano is to try to imitate the legato that is truly only done best by singers.

I highly recommend the master class (either), the lecture on performance anxiety, and the final concert.
