VOICEWORKS SPOTLIGHT

We’re delighted to launch “Voiceworks Spotlight” which will replace the Voiceworks End of Year show this May ’17.

Based on feedback we have received from parents and students, and from our own experience as teachers at Voiceworks, we have decided to restructure the end of year show as a highly student centred event.

We believe getting to perform live on stage in front of an audience with top musicians and professional sound and lighting is an important learning opportunity and experience for student singers.

Inspired by a format used very successfully in America and Canada this performance workshop event will further develop students to fully engage with their moment on stage. Our Voiceworks team will help prepare them for every aspect of the performance from stage craft to band leading. An independent expert panelist will provide written feedback of the performance and we will also video the event which will be made available to the student for personal or promotional use. Furthermore, no more than 3 singers will be allocated per song. Students can now choose to sing solo or as part of a duet or trio, however places available are limited.

WHAT DO YOU, THE PERFORMER GET?

  • 1to1 session with performance coach on Sun May 7th
