Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) says
Accompanist and coach par excellence Dr Graham Johnson returns to the WAAPA International Art Song Academy 2016 to lead seven days of master classes on the songs of Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert. The Academy commences on Saturday, 2 July and culminates in a Gala Concert at Perth’s Government House Ballroom on Sunday, 10 July.

“I learnt more about Schubert in 30 minutes of Graham Johnson talking about the great composer than I have in the previous 30 years. Passionate and witty, he guided us on a journey through the world of Lieder, encouraging and sharing his passion for Schubert’s songs with some of Australia’s best young singers … this was world standard.”
- Guy Noble, conductor and broadcaster

In 2016 we are delighted to welcome internationally renowned soprano Dame Felicity Lott, who will lend her expertise in the performance of mèlodie: the art of French song. Dame Felicity is one of England’s great singers and has performed in all the great opera houses and recital halls of the world.

Singers and pianists are invited to apply to be active participants. Teachers, students and music lovers of all kinds are welcome to attend as observers.
