Tony winner Betty Buckley will offer a "Song-Intensive Course" beginning Tuesday, Jan. 11 at St. Bartholomew's Church (Park Avenue at 51st Street) in New York City. The five-session course is designed for professional singers and serious students, those wishing to facilitate creative expression through song. Non-singers, however, are welcomed to audit the classes. Buckley's approach to the art of interpreting a song begins with meditation, which the actress describes as a "means of focusing one's mind." Each class will begin with a meditative session (auditors are invited to take part in this portion of the class), and then students will be taught how to approach a song from the standpoint of creating a character and how to tell a specific story through the song's lyrics.

There is an $850 fee for the five weeks; auditors will only be charged $600. Classes will meet Tuesday afternoons from noon until 4 PM (on January 11, 18, 25 and Feb. 1) and Thursday, Jan. 27 from 1:30 to 4 PM. Those interested in attending this seminar should contact Michael Murphy at (212) 591-0784. Class size is limited, so those you wish to take part in the course should call immediately.
