Caitlin Austin offers a group training series focusing on voice-body connection. Inspired by Caitlin's recent artistic internship at Double Edge Theatre, the series will emphasize exploring and stretching participants' unique vocal abilities while developing deeper awareness of the ensemble. Other topics of focus will include: fundamentals of vocal production, language, vocal placement and timbre, resonance, and close listening. The training will use material drawn from Kitka's repertoire and methods from Kitka's rehearsal processes. Participants can expect some physical exertion, though the type and level of rigor depends entirely on individual preference. The series is open to all artists with some singing experience. The content and format of each training session will vary, and registration for the full series is recommended.
Caitlin Austin joined Kitka in 2008. A Berkeley native, she attended many Kitka concerts as a kid and trained in the San Francisco Girls Chorus. She holds a BA in Music History from UCLA, where she took Bulgarian folk singing lessons from Kitka's friend and mentor Tzvetanka Varimezova. Caitlin completed an artistic internship at Double Edge Theatre in Ashfield, Massachusetts in 2012. She currently performs with Gregorian chant ensemble Euouae (of Lacuna Arts), the Austin-Tabancay Family Band, and her new vocal ensemble More Than One.
