Musical improv comes to the Sci-Fi center this Saturday from 12:30 pm to 2:30pm, $10.00 per participant, in the form of a drop-in class!
We will be doing three things in this class: Oscar Winning Moment, Sing It, and the Scene-To-Song. Participants will explore the functions of song in the context of the scene with regards to plot turns, character needs, and emotional heightening. Participants will then get a chance to initiate and participate in a musical scene, where they will take everything they've experienced thus far and throw it all on a safe stage. After that, it's a free-for-all; we will get through as many scene-to-songs as possible.
Anyone interested should also consider listening to an episode of Off Book: The Improvised Musical Podcast with Zach Reino and Jessica McKenna, with Scott Passarella from CSz LA as music director. You can listen on Apple Podcast, Stitcher, Spotify, wherever you listen to podcasts, or find a clip on YouTube.
