PULLMAN, Wash. — Discovery Sessions in Voice, a clinic for solo singers at
the high school level, will be presented by faculty from the Washington State
University School of Music and Theatre Arts on Jan. 13.

The daylong workshop, to be held at Auburn High School in Auburn, will
allow students to advance their knowledge and experience of vocal
techniques. WSU faculty members Lori Wiest, Julie Wieck, Charles Neufeld
and Sheila Converse will instruct short classes on body movement, vocal
technique, healthy use of the voice, stage presence and audition preparation.

In addition, students can participate in master classes to sing before the
professors and receive a short individual lesson. Master class participants
then will perform a recital at the end of the day.

WSU faculty members and students also will perform an afternoon recital.

For more information or to request an application, contact Wieck at
509/335-4331 or by e-mail at jwieck@wsu.edu. Applications must be mailed by

workshop and participating in a master class. There is limited space in the
master classes and students will be accepted in the order their applications are
received.
