Masterclass: Comedic Songs with Paul Sperry

  • Westminster Hall 1200 South Marquette Avenue Minneapolis United States (map)

Join us for a unique afternoon as Guest Artist Paul Sperry leads a masterclass on comedic songs performed by the artists in the MNDuo program, as they explore this unusual (and funny!) repertoire.

“Paul Sperry has surpluses of songfulness, curiosity, and intelligence. These have commended him to dozens of composers, eminent collaborators such as James Levine and Zubin Mehta, hundreds of students who have been brought through his master classes, and a specialized, enthusiastic segment of the musical public. We long ago lost count of the important premieres Mr. Sperry has given, but we have not lost the recollection of his engaging, generous platform manner or of his unaffected enthusiasm for the neglected corners of the song literature”. - The New Yorker
