Voice Master Class with Julie Fortney
Julie Fortney, DMA, served as Professor of Music and Vocal Studies Coordinator at Mars Hill University from 1972 until her retirement in 2016. She enjoyed an active career as a soprano soloist and vocal pedagogue, but it was her keen interest in voice science and vocal health that led to her 33-year affiliation with Estill Voice Training Systems (EVTS). She became an EVTS certified course instructor with service distinction and testing privileges and in 2005 was awarded the institution's first Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her efforts to integrate Jo Estill's research in vocal health and versatility into US undergraduate vocal studies curricula. This master class is free and open to the public.
