Mining for Magic - New Orleans! will be an intensive five-day gathering of a dozen vocalists seeking to find deeper musical connections with themselves and their audiences. Led by Berklee College of Music voice professor and touring artist Cindy Scott, along with University of New Orleans music professor and award-winning producer Brian Seeger, Mining for Magic - New Orleans! will open new pathways to musical freedom and expression, liberate your ideas and your sound, pump up your technique and encourage you to bring yourself all the way into the process of music making and performance.
Workshops, master classes with New Orleans musical dignitaries, rehearsals and the culminating concert with an A-team backing band, will all take place at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Mint, in the historical and vibe-drenched French Quarter. Summit participants will be housed just a couple of blocks away from the Mint and Frenchman Street, one of the most concentrated live music scenes in the world. Although the schedule will be full of inspiring and empowering musical activities, there will be some time for exploring, hearing live music, and sampling the local cuisine in this foodie paradise.
