I got wind of the Russian Art Song website via the Diction Police Facebook Page and the Your Accompanist Twitter feed (thanks, you two!).  The site is by Dr. Anton Belov, a baritone who hails from Russia.  Resources include (from the description on the home page):

  • IPA transcriptions and word for word translations
  • Song lyrics read by a native speaker
  • Multimedia online diction manuals
  • Vintage common domain sound recordings (how to access audio files)
  • Scores (for reference only)
  • Biographical information

Also check their About page for links to other websites related to Russian opera and song.

One especially outstanding resource on the site is A Guide to Russian Diction, a 67-page book available as a free PDF download.

Michelle Latour is soliciting input from voice teachers and students for an article for Classical Singer.  She wants to know how teachers use social media and the implications in their voice studio:

For voice teachers, how do you handle social media? Are you friends with your students on Facebook? Why/why not? […] How do you predominantly communicate with your students- text, phone or email? If you do text, do you have any parameters regarding texting?

For those of you currently studying voice, are you friends with your teachers on Facebook? Why/why not? Do you text your teachers? Do you even use email anymore? What are your thoughts about social media and your teachers?

To respond, you can leave a comment at the original blog post or email her directly.
