Vocal Masterclass with Georgia Mancio
Multi award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, presents an intimate performance workshop, suitable for vocalists of all levels in jazz and related genres.
Georgia brings her considerable experience as a professional performer (Ronnie Scotts, BBC Proms, Jazz at Lincoln Center), voice teacher (City University) and producer (Revoice! Festival, Hang) to work with vocalists in a collaborative setting, focussing on stage craft, interpretation and effective voice use.
Participants should prepare one or two songs to perform to the group, providing lead sheets in their correct keys for the accompanist or suitable backing tracks. Limited to 4 spaces for performers but those wishing to participate as observers are also welcome.
Multi award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted artists. Her multi-lingual music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity. Earlier this year Georgia released her 8th album, ‘Quiet Is The Star’, co-written with Grammy-winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent, alongside the publication of their book of 33 songs: cementing their reputation as “one of the most formidable songwriting partnerships of the 21st Century” (Jazz Views).
Universally praised for its “exquisite yet potent series of reflections on the human condition” (Jazz Rag), it follows their seminal 2017 album, ‘Songbook’, which was launched at a sold out headline show at Ronnie Scott’s (“unequivocally, one of the gigs of the year” Jazzwise) with subsequent performances across Europe and the US, including famed New York clubs Dizzy’s, Kitano and Mezzrow.
Georgia’s previous release, ‘Finding Home' (2019) – co-produced with pianist/composer Kate Williams and her acclaimed Four Plus Three ensemble and featuring classical guitarist John Williams – was awarded Best Album in 2020 Parliamentary Jazz.
