Windmore Foundation for the Arts Collaborates for Vocal and Drama Improvisation Workshop by Dietlinde Turban Maazel. Castleton Festival, Culpeper Baptist Church, Jewell Tone Music, and Windmore Foundation for the Arts join together and are pleased to present a workshop by Dietlinde Turban Maazel who is the co-founder, Artistic Director, and CEO of the Castleton Festival. The vocal and drama improvisation workshop for youth will take place on Saturday April 16, 2016 at 2 pm. The workshop, for ages 13 to 20, will be held at Culpeper Baptist Church located at 318 S West Street in Culpeper, Virginia. Utilizing fundamental acting principles, and improvisation, including singing improv with piano accompaniment, the workshop will concentrate on the unique potential each singer-actor has while striving to develop the physical, vocal, emotional, and intellectual skills that enable them to work freely, joyfully and convincingly. In 2009, together with her late husband Maestro Lorin Maazel, Dietlinde Turban Maazel founded the Castleton Festival and continues her dedication to music education there and for collaborative projects. She is currently on faculty at Rutgers University where she created a new course “Acting for Singers” for the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Due to the generosity of all the collaborative partners and Dietlinde Turban Maazel donating her time, tuition for the April 16 workshop is reduced to $15.00 per student. Space is limited and a maximum of 20 youth participants will be admitted to the workshop. Some prior acting and vocal experience preferred. For more information please call Jewell Tone Music at 540-317-1115.
