Mark Petty and Dr. Cayla Rosché are American scholars and musicians researching various aspects of Icelandic vocal repertoire. Mark is exploring the connections between Icelandic choir music and nature, specifically how we express our relationship to the natural world through song and how music can help foster environmental stewardship. He fuses his experience as both mountain guide and choir conductor for a dialog on the intersection of nature and art. Cayla Rosché is a Fulbright Arctic Scholar teaching phonetics and voice at Listaháskóli this semester. She wrote a handbook on Icelandic singing phonetics that English reading singers can use to begin singing in Icelandic. Recently her interest has been drawn to Iceland’s Nobel Prize winning author Halldór Kiljan Laxness and the vocal repertoire composed utilizing his text. During this seminar Mark and Cayla will present on the impetus for their research and where it is now. This will be a round table discussion where questions and ideas are more than welcome. Þorbjörg Daphne Hall will be moderating this discussion.
Soprano and musicologist, Cayla Rosché earned a DMA from UW-Madison in Voice Performance and Vocal Pedagogy. She is currently a Fulbright Scholar teaching phonetics and continuing her research on Icelandic art song at Listaháskoli in Reykjavík. She recently presented a recital in Reykjavík of American and Icelandic Art Songs. To continue her research, she was awarded the Foreign Language Area Studies fellowship and a grant from The American-Scandinavian Foundation to lecture, teach, and research in Reykjavík, Iceland. In May of 2021 Dr. Rosché presented lectures on Icelandic Art Song and Lyric Diction at the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies conference and the Sam Houston Art Song Festival. Cayla is also the voice professor at Edgewood College and Rosché Music Studio, and an active singer in Madison, Wisconsin.
