Join acclaimed Canadian Tenor, Benjamin Butterfield, for this exciting opportunity to fine tune your classical singing skills. Students will have the opportunity to sing a classical selection live with an accompanist, receive feedback from Benjamin on their piece, and work with him to incorporate his notes. This is a valuable learning opportunity for any student, but especially those participating in The Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival.
Students will also have the option to participate as an auditor and gain a wealth of knowledge from observing their peers.
