CTL_SUMMER 600x300_How to Listen to a Song


From Stephen Sondheim to Lin-Manuel Miranda, American musical theater songwriters craft music, lyrics, and story into artistic masterpieces. Study with acclaimed DC actress and song interpreter Felicia Curry (Helen Hayes Award winner and nine-time Helen Hayes nominee) as we analyze the structure, form, and artistry of a set of superb musical theater songs. You’ll learn new ways to understand lyrics, how the words pair with music, and how a song relates to character, plot, and themes. Join Felicia to open a whole new musical world of understanding and appreciation!
