Concert and vocal masterclass at the Gallery

This weekend, classical singers Rianne Graham and Iris Ferwerda are taking over the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery.

On Saturday, 11 August join Rianne and Iris as they entertain with a range of pieces from well known operas and musicals such as The Marriage of Figaro, LesMiserable, Carmen, The Pirates of Penzance, Lakme, Wicked and more. And on Sunday, a vocal masterclass is on offer for anyone with an interest in singing.

Ms Graham said the masterclass was for singers of all skill levels.

“The class is going to be really comprehensive, so professional singing experience isn’t necessary.

“We’ll focus on how to speak and sing safely as well as covering topics like how the voice works, vocal health, projecting the voice, stage presence and getting over those pesky nerves and stage fright.

“There will also be a chance for any attendees to perform and be critiqued, constructively of course, by myself and Iris – but this is in no way compulsory.”

To secure your ticket for the concert, masterclass or both, contact the gallery on 5036 2430.

Masterclass: Sunday, 12 August – 10.30am to 3pm
Where: Both events held at Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery
Cost: Concert only – $25 adults, $15 students
Concert and masterclass – $55 Adults, $45 students
