This master class will take place in front of a ticketed audience.
Jeanine Tesori’s composition master class is designed for emerging musical theater composers and lyricists. Ms. Tesori will give the same assignment to two young writers: adapt a news article from the past year into a musical theater song, based deeply in character and story. She will examine song structure, musical embodiment of character, and the process from source to song. This workshop will provide participants and observers with a look into how stories from the world around us translate onto the stage and become musicalized. Audience members are also encouraged to bring an article that resonates with them to the class.
