23rd – 30th August 2017
Meastro Ubaldo Fabbri founded his international summer academy, Voci nel Montefeltro, with special emphasis on diction, phonetics, phrasing and expression in Belcanto in 2004.
The Lingua del Canto programme was originally founded by Sheila Luxon in Urbania, near Urbino in Le Marche in 2001, in collaboration with the Centro Studi Italiani summer vocal and language programme. In 2004 the Lingua del Canto programme moved slightly north to Novafeltria to join Meastro Fabbri as he set up his new academy. Sheila retired in 2009 and since then until last year just a few students came out for coaching with Maestro Fabbri.
Sister summer courses held in Novafeltria in collaboration with Maestro Fabbri are La Musica Lirica, based in Decatur, Illionois, "La lingua della Lirica" based in NewYork (the Mannes and Manhattan Schools of Music) and also the Japanese 'TSP in Italy' programme.
