Perry-Mansfield in the Press

Pianist Shelly Markham accompanies Valerie Swift while rehearsing a piece Wednesday at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp.It’s Photo detailPerry-Mansfield week, a time of year when my heart goes back to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Article about the program in the local paper.  (And, needless to say, pay attention to Marcovicci’s stunning interpretation of “mountain chic,” particularly the anklets.)

    Delighted to see that you got the press notice about the 2010 Art of Cabaret Workshop at Perry-Mansfield in Steamboat Springs. I was one of the very fortunate participants, and I must say my head is still up in the clouds – I mean that in a good way, of course. This was a transformative experience. Those of us in the class received a lot of individualized attention and coaching due to the limited size of the program. The faculty are all at the top of the field and they shared their talent and experience with incredible generosity. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in taking their cabaret performances to a new level, is open to learning more about themselves, and is willing to work hard. I guarantee you will reap great rewards from the experience.

    I could go on and on, but I just got back 36 hours ago, and still trying to process it all. I loved reading Matt Howe’s posting about the Yale Conference. All of that resonated with my experience at Perry-Mansfield as well. What I think may differ, however, is the attention one gets when working in a program that is intentionally small and focused. I’m eager to compare notes with Matt.
