Libero Canto Conference

♪ 2020 feb.19-23 in Vienna


■ February 19-23, 2020

The 4th Libero Canto International Vocal Society was held in Vienna.

<Libero Canto International Vocal Society has been held in Italy, Vienna, New York, etc.>



The Libero Canto singing method was invented by Professor Lajos Szamosi.

Professor Lajos Szamosi is also known as Alte Szamosi-meaning his predecessor, Szamosi.


And his son, Edvin Szamosi, inherited it.

At this conference, I had the opportunity to learn from Edvin's sister, Ms. Hedda Szamosi.

Ms. Deborah Carmichael, who has studied under Edvin and Ms. Hedda for many years and inherited the Libero Canto trademark, organized and hosted this conference with Ms. Kinga Cserjesi, who works with her in her hometown of New York.


Satoshi Hasegawa studied under Professor Lajos Szamosi and Edvin Szamosi. (There is also guidance from Ms. Szamosi Hedda for a while)

He is the leader of Libero Canto in Asia.

■ Libero Canto the path to free singing

This time, Deborah and Kinga edited and created the text for this title and distributed it to the participants.

This is the source of the literature of Professor Artesamoshi and Edvin Samoshi.

Translated into English because the language is Hungarian. (I asked for a Japanese translation this time)

A part is also described in Hasegawa's blog.
