THE CROSSOVER WORKSHOP™ is for classical singers who want or need to sing musical theater with a legitimate sound and delivery while maintaining good, healthy “classical” technique. Learn about the important differences in performing musical theater that will give you a leg up in being competitive and professional and how you can get there easily from where you are. Our presenters will be a coach/accompanist who has worked at the highest levels of both opera and musical theater and an experienced crossover singer who is equally at home in both genres. This workshop is open to singers and accompanists.


The Presenters

Richard Gordon. Originally from Wyoming, Richard’s diverse musical career has ranged from conducting and coaching opera in the Alaskan tundra to performing solo piano concerts in the jungles of Africa. As conductor/accompanist he toured with Met diva Patrice Munsel and film star Jane Powell, and he has accompanied many of opera’s luminaries. His associations with opera companies include Ecuador’s Teatro Nacional Sucre, Anchorage Opera, Washington (D.C.) Opera, New Orleans Opera, Pusan (Korea) Grand Opera, St. Louis Opera and Chautauqua Opera. Equally at home in musical theater, he has conducted national tours and has been associated with Goodspeed Opera, Playwrights Horizons and Phillip Glass Ensemble, and with many well-known popular singers such as Audra McDonald, Kevin Kline, David Cassidy and Linda Ronstadt. He has served on the faculties of the University of Liberia (Africa), Southern Methodist University and the American Musical & Dramatic Academy. As guest artist, he has conducted performances or led masterclasses in body awareness for singers at Westminster Choir College, Shenyang Conservatory (China) and Dalien Music Conservatory (China), among other institutions. Also a vocal coach and arranger, Richard has a special gift for bringing out the very best in singers and instrumentalists.
Elena Greco. Elena is a singer, writer, director and integrative counselor with a lifelong commitment to self-actualization for herself and others, and most of all, to promoting the power and flow of creativity in all of us. Elena Greco’s primary creative focus is producing multimedia projects that entertain, educate and enliven, and on facilitating groups that simultaneously educate and heal. An opera singer and specialist in Spanish art song, she is equally at home in cabaret and musical theater. Whatever the genre, she wants the audience to be inspired and thoroughly entertained. To further her intention to bring healing through music, Elena hosts THE MUSIC SALON™ monthly to provide a haven for creative artists to share their art among colleagues and receive support in their creative process. Other upcoming projects of ELENA GRECO MULTIMEDIA PRODUCTIONS™ include CONCERTS FOR HEALING™, which focuses on issues of health and ecology, uplifting and entertaining through beautiful popular music while educating about these important issues, and OPERA REALE™, which offers simple, affordable and unusual multimedia productions of great opera with the finest local singers and musicians, focusing on expressing the composer’s music at the highest level, entertaining and inspiring the audience, and fostering creative development for the singers and musicians.
