This master class will focus on various aspects of voice work including breath, formation of sound, resonance, and articulation. Participants will be invited to explore each of these components to help move towards vocal freedom in performance. Extending the voice work toward vocal color and expression, each performer will have the opportunity to read a piece of text (4-5 lines) and receive feedback from Lori. This session is suitable for emerging and professional artists, as each participant will uncover different moments of discovery depending upon their understanding of their own voice and their current career demands.
