The six-session course will be offered Monday nights Feb. 9-March 30 (excluding Feb. 16 and March 23). The course is open to actors who sing and singers who act. Four spots are currently available for the 12-person class; those interested should submit a headshot/resume to info@michaelhowardstudios.com. The master classes, according to press notes, are "for the singing actor that focuses on song interpretation and vocal performance. Students work individually on material of their choice with Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn each class, as well as participate in group exercises. Students who take the class should come ready to play, feel free to experiment with material and take risks. Although this is not a vocal technique class, Judy will address individual technical concerns and make suggestions about how to approach working on them."

A three-time Tony Award nominee for her work in She Loves Me, Les Miserables and Chess, Judy Kuhn also starred in the concert mounting of Alan Menken and Tim Rice's King David and the Los Angeles premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard. Kuhn received an Obie Award for her work in the Off-Broadway Laura Nyro tribute, Eli's Comin', and played Fosca in the Kennedy Center mounting of Stephen Sondheim's Passion. Her solo recording is titled "Serious Playground - The Songs of Laura Nyro" (Ghostlight Records).

There is a $550 charge for the six-session course.
