SongStudio is a program for young vocalists under the leadership of world-renowned soprano Renée Fleming. Designed to renew and refresh the presentation and experience of the vocal recital, SongStudio brings leading musicians and other performing artists together to mentor emerging vocalists and collaborative pianists, exploring innovative approaches to both classic and current song repertoire, and inviting new audiences to engage with the art form.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, SongStudio 2021 took place online and included a series of master classes, individual coaching sessions, and conversations about the art of the vocal recital. In lieu of the opportunity to perform on stage for a live audience, each of the six participating vocalist and collaborative pianist duos were asked to conceptualize and record a short film centered on a song of their choice.
