Cicily Daniels, right from the Broadway cast of Once on this Island at the Circle in the Square Theater, came to Mike Risko Music in January 2019, to teach a Broadway Master Class. This class focused on voice and audition techniques. She worked with the participants on everything from projection, diction and song selection to how to present yourself on stage and not get nervous. Each participant had the chance to sing a song for Cicily and get feedback. Most of the participants of this master class had been in our cast of Once on this Island Jr and had seen Cicily on Broadway when the cast went to see the show so this was an extra special opportunity. At the end of the workshop, Cicily sang "Mama Will Provide" from Once on this Island and the kids were thrilled. It was a great learning opportunity and lots of fun.
