About us

Welcome to the Tuscany Project! For 25 years, we

have had the joy of meeting and working with

people of all ages, nationalities and skill levels.

The only prerequisites are an open mind, a desire

to sing, and the courage to take risks.

We are: ANJA STRUCHHOLZ (Germany-movement

& Performance Presence). BELLE LINDA HALPERN

(Boslon USA-Vocal Technique & Songs) and RON

ROY (Boslon USA-Songs, musical Slyle). In 2018 we

are offering our 'classic' project. The focus will be

making a song your own and sharing It with an

audience In your own unique way. Participants

come together at the picturesque Locanda del

Gallo In Italy each year In a supportive

environment where the group and the Individual's

process are respected. The work we do Is not about

competition; It Is about celebrating each

participant's own unique voice In a vibrant.

International community of singers and teachers.

“A year on, I am still feeling the effects of the project and my creativity has just shot up. I‘ve never sung so well, or been so unafraid to explore, and to do that in a live performance context. Every time I go out on stage it‘s almost irrelevant that there is an audience; I just want to let rip” — Louise Rutkowski, (This Mortal Coil) singer and recording artist, London, England
