ABOUT

Suitable for 18+ years

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned chorister, we invite you to join us for an 8-week series of classes that will immerse you in a traditional chorus environment. Workshop leader and principal soprano Lisa Harper-Brown will provide professional insight into vocal technique and introduce you to a diverse range of repertoire. The series will have you singing "sweet and low" to some glorious Mozart, Morricone's film score from The Mission, and music from our very own Koolbardi wer Wardong by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse.

Choose to participate at either the Adagio or Allegro level and prepare to let your voice soar!

The cost of the series is $230 which includes 8 classes.

CLASSES

6PM to 7.15pm

Adagio

A great class for beginners or those returning to singing, this stream starts with the basics of vocal production and an introduction to aural training. Participants will experience various styles and traditions of classical technique. You do not need to know how to read music to participate.

Book Tickets

7.45pm to 9pm

Allegro

For those who are seeking a faster-paced class, this stream will help to develop singing skills through technique and the rehearsal of more advanced repertoire from the classical cannon. The ability to read music is advantageous for this class.

VOCAL AND LANGUAGE COACH

LISA HARPER-BROWN
Critically acclaimed as ‘radiant both vocally and visually‘, Lisa Harper-Brown is a unique and commanding performer. Lisa made her debut for Opera Australia singing Pamina in The Magic Flute. Since then performances including Fiordiligi in Così fan Tutte, Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, and Elsa in Lohengrin, have delighted both critics and audiences alike, culminating in a prestigious Helpmann Award for her portrayal of Countess Almaviva in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.

Possessing a vast concert repertoire, and recognised for her ability to cross genres and styles, Lisa is a highly regarded concert, festival and recital performer, having appeared throughout Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and New Zealand. Her most recent musical collaboration saw her joining forces with Japanese Marimbist, Naoto Segawa, in Epiphanies: performing traditional vocal repertoire which has been reinvented for new musical landscapes. Plans for touring Epiphanies in Festivals throughout the Asia Pacific are currently in progress.

Lisa is heard regularly in ABC Classic FM's Sunday Live! Series and on Radio NZ Concert, has recorded many new works with NZSO, and has released two CDs dedicated to Australian Art Song. She currently divides her time between her performing commitments and her other passion: teaching. Having taught in a variety of educational settings, Lisa’s extensive ‘on-stage’ experience, research into many schools of Vocal Pedagogy and language proficiency make her a highly sought-after Voice Teacher, Choral Trainer and Conductor, and Adjudicator.
