I Have a Song to Sing O!
Saturday 21st April
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
English Touring Opera, in partnership with D’Oyly Carte Opera Trust, delivers a workshop for teenagers and young adults, introducing the world of Gilbert and Sullivan, and focusing on vocal technique, dialogue, comic timing and patter. The session will also look at pathways into the profession.
Renowned mezzo-soprano Gaynor Keeble and star baritone Bradley Travis lead the workshop. Bradley was Bunthorne in ETO’s acclaimed Patience last spring, and Gaynor has sung principal roles for almost all of the UK’s leading opera companies, including several years with D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.
Pitched for young singers (aged approximately 15-30) of all abilities, the workshop will be fun, inspiring and insightful. The workshop is entirely free, and there are complementary packs for all participants containing information about the voice, Gilbert and Sullivan’s works and history, and further educational information, as well as a CD.
If you would like to take part please email: Daniel Coelho at ETO
I Have a Song to Sing O! is supported by a generous grant from the D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust.
