FAIRBANKS - The 30th anniversary season of the 2010 Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival opens this month with a Winter Edition favorite: Cabaret, with University of Alaska Fairbanks Associate Professor of Voice Jaunelle Celaire leading the way.
“It will be refreshing, delicious and entertaining,” she FSAF Director Terese Kaptur. “Expect smiles, laughter and some particular passions.”
Cabaret, the first performance of the year, is Saturday Jan. 30 in the Westmark’s Latitude Room following a week-long series of vocal classes.
There is still time to sign up for the class, open to all who love to sing, ages 16 and up.
No previous training is necessary. Celaire, who also serves as music director for Zion Lutheran Church and conducts the University Chorus at UAF, will help students learn to sing the songs they know and love, in a nurturing atmosphere. She can also coach jazz singing.
Registrants must bring sheet music for one song they have memorized.
Space available for the class, which rehearses 8-10 p.m. Monday through Friday at Jo Scott’s home. The cost is $130. See www.fsaf.org for all the details.
Tickets for the performance are $10.
