Kristin Chenoweth Teaches Masterclass on Zoom

Take it from a Broadway star – sometimes you gotta improvise. Tony Award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth gave the first of two masterclasses Tuesday for some Oklahoma City University seniors via the Zoom platform while sheltering in place at her Manhattan home.

Chenoweth accepted an appointment as artist in residence at her alma mater last month. The Tony and Emmy Award-winning performer agreed to be in residence at the Wanda L. Bass School of Music at OCU at least once a semester, working with students in masterclasses, lessons and workshops and leading ongoing conversations on the business of Broadway and Hollywood. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, Chenoweth kept one of Broadway’s most enduring ideals: The show must go on.

Kristin Talks with the Students on Zoom

“What a wonderful session and what a kind and generous heart,” Mark Parker, dean of the Bass School of Music, said after the session. “Kristin Chenoweth was real, she was encouraging, motivating, and most of all she showed all 44 of us on this call that she is committed to these students for the long haul. I can't wait for the next meeting where she will dialog with all the performing arts students.”
