Fall 2017 NYC Workshops included:

Always Crossing Over : Now in the days of opera companies producing musicals, Executive Director, Broadway Producer, and former Artist Manager Aaron Sanko introduces techniques, tools, and best practices for nailing your next crossover audition. Participants performed a selection from their repertoire and worked through it with Mr. Sanko in a masterclass setting.

Performance Techniques Intensive : Ann Baltz’ Performance Techniques Workshops have been helping performers free up their innate creativity for over 30 years.  Singers worked through a selection from their repertoire with Ms. Baltz in a masterclass setting, and she helped them free up any ‘blocks’ that may stand in the way of giving committed, impassioned and courageous performances.

De-Mystifying Artist Management : What does my agent do all day? I think I’m ready for representation–now what? Is there a difference between an agent and a manager? A roundtable discussion with Executive Director and former Artist Manager, Aaron Sanko to discuss all facets of artist representation.

Bringing Your Artistry to Auditions : A no-risk audition situation to perform repertoire in front of an OperaWorks audition panel, receive balanced feedback, and a “call back” audition to incorporate the suggestions immediately. Participants could also observe others’ auditions from behind the table.

Individual Career Planning : Career planning sessions are focused on each singer’s individual career, strengths, and future. Participants worked with Ms. Baltz to refine or develop a career plan, and leave empowered to succeed in the industry.

Private Coaching : Ms. Baltz brings her expertise and passion to each coaching session, where singers utilize their strengths to identify opportunities for growth. Whether learning a new role, or dusting off some old favorites, singers leave with a clear path for a stellar performance.
