Testimonial from Graham Clark:

"Moravian Master Class is a wonderful testament to Mirka Zemanová’s dedication to and love of her native Czech music.  She is an excellent and sympathetic coach with a very fine ear and understanding of the subtleties and vagaries of language.  I believe the courses will prove invaluable and fascinating for all singers with a deep curiosity of Czech music, especially that from Moravia, and I heartily recommend them."

Graham Clark, tenor

Testimonials from participants:

"The amount of knowledge and experience I took away from this program is invaluable. Once the music was learned I felt as if I made giant steps forward in technique and musicality. I will never forget the music we made!" 

Garrett Obrycki, Eastman School of Music

"Overall, I feel hugely more confident and skilled in my interpretation and performance of Czech vocal literature. The lodging was lovely, the food was good, and the general atmosphere was fantastic—there is nothing like singing in a castle every day!"

Kate Rosen, University of Michigan

"This program was one of the best musical experiences I have had. I have come back motivated beyond belief to further Czech vocal repertoire in Canada!"

John Holland, York University, Canada

"Moravian Master Class was one of the most thrilling musical experiences I have had. The castle is perfectly situated in the heart of Moravia, and the immersion experience, coupled with the brilliant teaching and constant encouragement, gave me the confidence to participate in the 47th International Antonín Dvořák Singing Competition in November 2012. Thanks to the training I received at the Moravian Master Class, I was praised at the competition for my Czech diction, and placed third (Junior Division). Moravian Master Class is the perfect program to get your feet tapping with Moravian dance rhythms, and to make you sing in Czech as well as the natives!"
