    Decolonizing Broken Voices

    Decolonizing Broken Voices

    Oh HEY! Welcome to a gigantic honking episode. What started as an episode about The Time Perri Broke Her Voice very quickly transformed into a manifesto on decolonizing our relationship with our bodies and remembering lost knowledge. 



    From René Descartes to Resmaa Menakem, Charlotte traces the mind-body problem through the ages and connects it to why Perri had such a hard time singing in the year of our lord 2018. With the help of esteemed good friend and certified cool girl Clare Demer, we dive into the dark and depraved world of Muscle Tension Dysphonia and the ways in which the body acts as a canary in a coal mine for our sweet little inner world of emotions. It’s a wild ride!

    Chit Chat: From Sunscreen to Social Safety Nets

    Chit Chat: From Sunscreen to Social Safety Nets

    OMG hi we love this lil chit chat!!! The perf balance of the Big Three: ~~~Current Opera Events~~~Skincare~~~Theory~~~

    ! Pls consider going to our link in bio to sign the petition to support the demands of Eastman’s Black Student Union in supporting Jahshanti Henry! He was racially profiled by a public safety officer at his own school! He’s a flute STAR and we want to support him in this moment 3 !

    Char is knee deep in the very fricked up budget cuts by the administration/board at Ithaca College which include cutting the entire Masters of Music in Performance for every instrument, Conducting, Composition, and Suzuki Pedagogy as well as a TON of faculty. Getting the lil gears turning with the connections between part time/adjunct faculty in higher ed and young artists… !!!PRECARIOUS LABOR!!! UNDERPAID OVERQUALIFIED AND OFTEN EXPLOITED!!! NOT HOT!!!

    Perri has taken an econ CLASS and read BOOKS and read ARTICLES this spring and is here to tell us about how UBI is potentially very cool and very sexy. Charlotte agrees, so now we, as a nation, have UBI. It was that simple :) Congress passed it! Nature is healing :)

    Char has a lot of feelings about non-U.S. SPFs that she got from another Charlotte… @charlotteparler. Not her alter ego. Our Charlotte is not a skincare chemist and esthetician…. But she is in her heart :) Also, non-U.S. toothpastes. Charlotte is feeling unpatriotic in her body care routines!!! Perri likes Biologique Recherche… also not American… what happened to Freedom Fries and supporting ur Nation???? We are cancelled :(

    The one year anni of the podcast is July 2nd… some hot things might be happening…. Stay Chuned

    Chit Chat: Black Opera Alliance ~*~*SPOTLIGHT*~*~

    Hello sweet and beautiful friends : ) we decided to spend this week’s Chitchat chitchatting about Black Opera Alliance. They’ve been working tirelessly on the Pledge for Racial Equity and Systemic Change in Opera, including the recent release of the first Insight Report tracking the progress of US Opera Companies in acknowledging, signing, and committing to the pledge!

    We spend this episode talking about BOA’s mission, the Pledge, the first Insight Report findings, as well as BOA’s response to Tulsa Opera’s decommissioning of Daniel Roumain. Link to the first Insight Report, to donate to BOA, and the website to request a copy of Daniel Roumain’s aria is in our bio!!! Come chitchat with us : ))) xoxoxox

    Chit Chat: Life’s a Highway and We’re Gonna Ride It

    Guys… we have…. A new…. Idea! And it’s now Aries season so we Immediately Did It. We are going to start doing teeny tiny mini episodes ~interspersed~ between our longer essay-style Bad Boys.

    As horse_ebooks famously tweeted back in 2012, “everything happens so much”. We wanted a format where we could talk about all the wild shit that happens in the opera world and discuss the Hot News Items you send our way. We’ll also be doing some fun interviews and smaller scale things. Lots has already happened since this recording, but here’s our first lil ep. This is casual !chit chats!

    We’re talking about Oberlin LITERALLY putting all white people on a flier for a Black History Month concert, the famed and Internationally beloved :) Boris Martinovich Competition :), arrests in the opera world, and some other GOINGS ON… tune in.. it’s vibes… it’s chill… smoke a j while you listen… jk if you smoke ouid while listening to this episode we WILL find out and we WILL citizen’s arrest you…

    Welcome to CHITCHAT!

    3 Friendship 3

    3 Friendship 3

    Hi everyone, guess what : ) we recorded an episode of our podcast : ) welcome to SEASON TWO BABY!!!! In honor of Valentine’s day, we discuss a very special type of love on today’s ep.. the love between friends : )

    Your intrepid hosts discuss the unique temporal experience of friendships in opera, the duality of the Young Artist Experience, and the importance of holding contradicting truths in your body.

    Truth 1: The opera world is exploitative and we have to Change Things. Truth 2: We have cultivated meaningful, life-altering relationships while working in this industry. These two realities exist within us, one no more true than the other. We must live with these incompatibilities if we want to forge forward and build a future we all deserve to live in. Charlotte dives into some delicious Friendship Theory, and Perri tries to explain dialectics even though she hasn’t read Hegel in like five years.

    The YAP Episode Pt. 1 (Feat. Blake Jennings)

    The YAP Episode Pt. 1 (Feat. Blake Jennings)

    Hey cutie.. We’re bringing you a two part series on the history of YAPs and the YAP system’s exploitation of our l a b o r and sanity.

    In this first ep, we share some of our stories from YAPs and ‘Pay To Sings’, and we listen to many of the stories you sent in. We brought on our favorite decorated YAP Veteran @jakeblennings to break these down with us. We want to create a space where we can all openly express our frustration with this broken industry without fear. The only way we can properly grieve, feel frustration, and dream of a better world is in a net of support that we actively build with one another! Out loud! We are not alone, you are not alone. We want to continue to build this community of dreamers- continue to send us voice memos!

    Critique is good, critique is sexy, critique is hopeful. We love u.
