Jackson State University’s Department of Music will present a Lecture and Master class Wednesday, January 21 at the F.D. Music Recital Hall from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Dr. Patricia O'Neill, Soprano, will serve as guest lecture. Her topic will be "The Alexander Technique". Professor Emerita, Patricia O’Neill’s career has taken her throughout much of the United States, to Germany and the Far East. Among others, she has appeared with the Frankfurt Opera, Stuttgart Opera, Berlin Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Opera Midwest, Baton Rouge Opera, Utah Opera, Birmingham Civic Opera, Chicago Symphony, Utah Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic (New Orleans) and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Some of her operatic roles have included Pamina in The Magic Flute, Gilda in Rigoletto, Violetta in La Traviata, Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro, Mimi in La Boheme, Micaela in Carmen, and Marguerite in Faust.
Educated at Louisiana State University, Miss O’Neill then studied in Berlin with the famous pedagogue, Prof. Margarete von Winterfeldt. Ms O’Neill has performed extensively as a recitalist. The art song recital is a medium she especially enjoys, ‘because of its intimacy.’ In addition to performances throughout the U.S., her travels have taken her to Germany, Norway, United Kingdom, Ireland, S. Korea and on a month-long tour of The People’s Republic of China for both recitals and master classes.
The lecture and master class is open to the campus community.
