Audra was recently named the 2013 Margaret Hill Endowed Visiting Artist at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. To kick off this new collaboration, Saint Mary’s College will present “An Evening with Audra McDonald,” as part of the Margaret Hill Endowed Visiting Artist Series at the college on Monday night, January 28. During the day, Audra will teach a master class for Saint Mary’s students and will participate in a public Q&A session. In an interview with Saint Mary’s newspaper, The Observer, Audra said, “My main goal is to make the student as comfortable as possible and in a sense make every one else in the room ‘disappear’ so that it is just the two of us exploring the material. I think these one-shot evaluations have value because any chance to perform for a live audience is a lesson within itself.” To learn more about Audra’s master class, click here.
