Registrations are now open! Details below! 

This project is proudly supported by Opera Lovers WA. 

"As a young singer, venturing out into a professional career brings a lot of auditions for Masters degrees, Competitions, Young Artist Programs and Festival companies. It is a very unnatural performing space that brings nerves and can really knock your self esteem - even if you have worked incredibly hard and are very talented! When you are a student, the main focus is building performance skills and we have some fabulous establishments doing this, however in Perth it is very rare that young singers get the opportunity to audition in unfamiliar places with people they don't know - let alone in a brand new city. 

 

Our goal is to give these young singers tools to prepare for 'audition season' and build their confidence in this particular area of being an artist. A lot of people haven't had these opportunities recently, especially because of travel restrictions. Our aim is to make this workshop accessible to all of our local aspiring artists and be part of that bridge between studying and working as a professional performer."
