Histria Books announces the release of “The Moment Before the Music Begins” by Lisa Campbell Albert and Bill Lynch


Palm Beach, FL, September 16, 2022 –(PR.com)– Histria Books is pleased to announce the release of The Moment Before the Music Begins by Lisa Campbell Albert and Bill Lynch. The book is published by Vita Histria, an academic imprint of Histria Books dedicated to outstanding scholarly work in a variety of fields.

For more than twenty-five years, authors Lisa Campbell Albert and Bill Lynch have collaborated on and in musical theatre; work in professional productions, lead workshops, teach song study, and coach professional and aspiring musical theater artists. They noticed that they were both almost invariably drawn to the same artists. So they asked themselves the simple question “why?” What did these artists have, or perhaps more importantly, what did these artists do that made Lisa and Bill both get involved in the song?

After much debate and discussion, finally the answer became clear: Lisa and Bill understood why the artist was singing. It’s because the artist knew why they were singing. The urge to sing arose in the artist long before the first chord of the song was struck and continued until the final chord was resolved. Lisa and Bill cared why they were singing, so cared more about what they were doing in the song than how they were singing the song. In short, the need to sing began for the artist in the moments before the start of the music. In The Moment Before the Music Begins, they develop a vocabulary and process that guides singers to discover their personal reason for singing a specific song.

Christine Knoblauch-O’Neal, director of the Department of Performing Arts at Washington University in St. Louis raves: “Now actors, singers and dancers have a clear and concise process to improve their craft. musical theatre. THE TEAM is working! The book includes a foreword by famed Broadway star Taylor Louderman, who was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress for her performance in Mean Girls.
