Thanks to Ildikó Nagy, the director of the Hungarian House, for inviting us to join this Advent celebration! A warm, mostly Hungarian audience expressed great appreciation, not only for our heartfelt singing, but also for the excellent Hungarian pronunciation of Deborah and Marisa. The fact that Kinga’s pronunciation was above reproach was less surprising. The audience also enjoyed singing with us a beautiful Hungarian Christmas tune: Ó gyönyörüszép, titokzatos éj.

The second international Libero Canto conference was covered by the local paper, in the Ladino language!
Teachers and students of the Libero Canto approach sang for each other and for a happy and supportive audience of colleagues and friends. The program included classical, jazz, and original compositions by the participants. This was the first Libero Canto event of its kind, and the whole day was marked by an atmosphere of warmth, musical camaraderie, and celebration, nourished by an abundant spread of food and drink!Find out more »
Libero Canto held its first international conference in the Hague, Netherlands. There were 11 participants from 9 different countries, including Hungary, Holland, Austria, Canada, the U.S., Italy, Ireland, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.
We were grateful to have the opportunity to meet our wider professional family. We exchanged lessons and shared our experiences and our love of the Libero Canto approach. We delved into the fundamental principles of the work and explored both our disagreements and our common ground in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We learned an enormous amount! We made music together, and we listened to recordings of the great singers we revere. It was particularly moving to listen to recordings of Cantor Ladislav Blum, the husband of Teresa Blumova, and of Astrid Hellesnes Hukvari, a student of Lajos Szamosi. Special thanks to Jana Lewitová, who gave us a taste of her amazing musical world.
This first conference was an intense, challenging, fascinating, and ultimately very moving experience for those involved.
