Kashu-do (歌手道): Kashu-do in Kapellsberg: A 12-day Opera Academy

On 8-20 July 2014, Kashu-do Studios and Kapellsberg Music Department of Härnösands Folkhögskola in Härnösand, Sweden will present a 12-day course designed to help the ever-developing singer to assess his/her operatic potential and determine his/her proficiency in vocal technique, stagecraft, mental focus and physical fitness, musicianship and career development techniques.  Unlike the traditional summer academies, we do not claim to be able to make lasting changes in two weeks.  The goal of this course is to give the student the tools to make lasting changes  that will impact their singing lives considerably.

There is no age limit.  All singers who are serious about improving their skills are welcome, whether a serious amateur who wishes to develop excellent fundamentals or the professional who comes to refine already well-developed skills.

Singers will be attended to by 10 established professionals who will help them identify both their strengths and their weaknesses.  Singers will have the opportunity to perform daily in voice lessons, acting classes, coachings, recitals and concerts.

The High Coast (Höga Kusten) of Northeast Sweden is idyllic in the summer and offers a beautiful outdoor life including Smitigen Beach and Nature-reserve.  The view of the Baltic Sea from the high cliffs is breath-taking and one can read a book under natural light around the clock. So bring eye-masks if you wish to sleep!

We also plan a cruise on our day off!

Come to Härnösand and discover your operatic potential!
