Lied Center summer camps to be offered remotely
Even as COVID-19-related shutdowns continue, the Lied Center for Performing Arts remains committed to making opportunities available to students interested in arts education.
The Lied Center’s Triple Threat Broadway Intensive and Piano Academy will both be offered remotely this summer.
“With the cancelation of so many school shows, concerts and recitals, we know that students in the arts have lost a lot of opportunities recently,” said Jane Schiermeyer Hansen, the Lied Center’s education director. “We wanted to find a way to modify our camps so that we could still offer these unique opportunities to learn from professional artists, even if we couldn’t do it in person. Fortunately, our wonderful teaching artists were excited about getting creative. As it turns out, students will actually get more one-on-one time with our teachers in this new format.”
Students in the Triple Threat Broadway Intensive, June 22-26, will take master classes from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Michael Webb, actor Sam Hartley, actor/dancer Con O’Shea-Creal and actor Allison Macri. Hartley and O’Shea-Creal are both Lincoln natives. Each day will include small-group Zoom classes in acting, dancing and voice, as well as special sessions on topics including auditioning, studying musical theater in college, and life as a working actor. The program is open to high school students.
The Piano Academy, July 19-25, will be led by international award-winning pianist Eric Zuber, Glenn Korff School of Music faculty member and acclaimed pianist Paul Barnes and teacher/author/performer Donna Gunn. The academy is intended for high school-aged pianists and will include sessions and workshops focused on artistry and performance.
