|Lorraine Nubar & Dalton Baldwin|
Foliage Art Song— founded by Celina Moore and Joan Stepenske in 1991 and
sponsored by Vermont Opera Theater — was a program of master classes and recitals
led by internationally acclaimed performers and teachers
Dalton Baldwin and Lorraine Nubar.
It was last held in 2009, and, alas, will not be continued.
As in recent
years, all the classes and events took place
in Montpelier, the tiny capital of Vermont, so participants were able
about this attractive little town, visit the Farmers' Market, find a
meal in one of many good eateries, and generally gawk at the maple
leaves like the busloads of tourists.
Classes were open to singers at Advanced and Intermediate levels with separate classes with Lorraine Nubar and Dalton Baldwin held concurrently on Friday and Saturday mornings and afternoons.
Advanced I singers had two 30 minute sessions with Lorraine Nubar, with optional staff pianist. Advanced II singer-pianist teams could request two sessions (30 minutes each) with Dalton Baldwin and one session with Lorraine Nubar, or the reverse. Singers new to the song recital could apply for Intermediate Level: 30-minute voice lesson and 15-minute Master Class with Lorraine Nubar with staff pianist.
Registered auditors and participants were free to observe any of the Master Classes.

Master Class Highlights
Short master classes with Dalton Baldwin
and singers and pianists selected from the "Advanced II" level
WordStage VT, which combined literature and song performed by Vermont artists
to illuminate some of classical music's most fascinating and remarkable figures,
here, Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
Sadly, WordStage, the creation of multi-talented Tim Tavcar,
is no longer available in Vermont.
