While we're on the subject of Amanda McBroom...We just got a note from her asking us to help get the word out about one of her latest projects. It seems that Amanda and LA voice teacher Susan Kiechle are jetting off to Italy in May to teach a week long vocal workshop in the Tuscan Hills. The workshop is called Vocal Magic - The Art & Craft of Singing and is being held at San Fedele a renovated monastery in Tuscany. We've seen Amanda in action as a teacher and a more generous and loving instructor is hard to find. May 16th through the 23rd are the appointed dates, and if you want the complete scoop go to Il Chiostro and click on current workshops.
