Ever wondered about whether you could sing opera?
Opera Worcester are inviting people to find out at a workshop at Perdiswell Young Peoples’ Centre on Saturday 12 May from 10.00am – 4.00pm.
Opera is one of the most demanding forms of singing but also the most rewarding. Many of the current Opera Worcester chorus are not trained singers but have derived tremendous satisfaction from taking part in Opera Worcester’s productions.
Chorus member, Ali Ravenhall comments:
“As a new member who doesn’t read music it’s been great to be part of the chorus for Opera Worcester’s latest production. It’s been an exciting challenge which I have loved. Opera Worcester have made me very welcome and have been really supportive in my journey to tackle opera”.
The workshop will be led by Opera Worcester Musical Director, Sue Black, herself a professional singer and vocal coach.
“Many of our chorus do not read music and have not had any musical training but we take them step by step through the learning process and provide basic coaching on technique during rehearsals.
To do opera at its best, it demands a robust vocal technique and a number of our principals have studied professionally. However, once mastered, it provides a basic singing technique that can enable singers to tackle almost anything. It also great for developing good breathing and studies have shown that singing in a group can contribute so much to general wellbeing and health. We urge people to join us on the workshop and exercise those lungs!”
