La Voce Totale Breathes New Life Into The Las Vegas Opera Scene
Published on Sat, Jun 22, 2013 (2:03 p.m.)Las Vegas Based Summer Vocal Program Provides More Listening Opportunities For The Classical Audience
Although the fair city of Las Vegas has its fair share of entertainment, from its myriad of Cirque du Soleil productions to the various off-the-Strip shows piquing the interest of both visiting tourists and natives alike, this shining desert oasis often lacks the same numerous opportunities for those fans of a more classical genre. This summer, renowned international opera singers Luana Devol, dramatic soprano, and Mark Thomsen, tenor, with the aid of distinguished vocal coach Spencer Baker, will remedy this situation with their summer music festival, La Voce Totale.
La Voce Totale is a Las Vegas based summer vocal program designed to provide a total, intensive experience for singing actors of opera, operetta, and musical theater through the performance of concerts as well as scenes programs. For four weeks, from June 24th to July 23rd, 2013, the proteges of La Voce Totale will study and work with Master Teachers Luana Devol, Mark Thomsen, and Spencer Baker, as well as with Guest Faculty James Caraher, Artistic Director/Conductor of the Indianapolis Opera, Kelly Anderson, Executive Director of the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra, Marc Falcone, musical director, conductor, and orchestrator of such noteworthy productions as the Tony Award winning Dreamgirls, and Susan Beaubian, celebrated screen and television actor/singer, in order to improve their technique and stage abilities, working towards two concerts, the first of which will be on Saturday, June 29th, 2013, at 7 pm.
The First FREE Concert, “Vocal Masterpieces,” will be held on Saturday, June 29th, 2013, at 7 pm, at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, located at 2 Pecos Road, Henderson, Nevada. Come and enjoy an evening of beautiful song from opera, operetta, and musical theater!
