Description

In this dynamic workshop, all who attend will be guided through a routine of physical and vocal warm ups and technique to prepare you for performance. This will benefit the most beginning to advanced performer, solo, ensemble or choir, of any genre.

We might mix in some exercises for improving your BELTING Voice and deeper understanding of how to produce sound in healthy ways, even in rock, broadway, and pop. Bring your questions and challenges!!

Everyone will be involved in the workshop and 3-4 singers have been selected to perform for further learning about topics such as: stage fright, focused attention, breaking through thresholds that 'hold us back'. The genre focus this time is mostly pop/musical theatre but will benefit all styles of singing.

Space is limited. Hope to see you there!!

Meet Your Instructor

Heidi Muendel MMus is passionate about making vocal technique accessible to all ages and styles of singers. For 8 years, Heidi ran the Life-Sound Studio in Frankfurt, Germany where she would offer weekly performance classes. In these classes singers of all genres came to dissolve their fears of singing in front of people and to receive feedback that assisted them to have a more realistic understanding of their voice and performance. In these specially cultivated workshops singers quickly found new freedom in their expression! Heidi wants to create a safe space for people to let go of unnecessary tensions. Through understanding of the instrument, play, and warm-hearted participation of the group, amazing transformations are possible for singers.

All physical abilities are welcome. Heidi has worked with people of all physical abilities. For example, she spent a couple years conducting online workshops for a fabulous group of people with Parkinsons during the pandemic. The mutual learning of how singing could set these bodies free was extremely valuable for everyone involved. Please include yourself, where you are at.

Kamloops Symphony Society

Operating since 1976, the Kamloops Symphony is a fully professional orchestra with an annual operating budget of over $1 million, a significant achievement for an orchestral music organization in a region of just over 100,000 residents.

The primary purpose of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra (KSO) is to engage and enrich the citizens of Kamloops and the Thompson Valley Region of Interior British Columbia through music. Considered a cornerstone of the cultural fabric of Kamloops, the Symphony’s primary activity is the presentation of high quality professional orchestral concerts. Historically, this has been accomplished through the presentation of nine to ten annual programs, and up to eighteen performances in Kamloops and the neighbouring city of Salmon Arm.

An important part of the Symphony’s mandate is to provide educational opportunities for the citizens of Kamloops. The Symphony also presents concerts for school children, and educational presentations in public and private district schools. Since 2002, the Kamloops Symphony Music School, a division under the Kamloops Symphony, has provided opportunities for music education to citizens of the region, and given further employment opportunities to local musicians. The school has extended our community connections and helped attract professional musicians to live and work in Kamloops.
