Exploring the Voice


Fully booked

Thursday 14 April 2016


Head to the Royal Opera House for a fascinating introduction into voice production.

American vocalist Joan La Barbara, renowned for her unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques, is joined by Paul Farrington (vocal coach and vocal consultant) and Mary King (performer, teacher, coach and broadcaster) as they explore the material quality of the voice and how it can be manipulated in performance. The Insight is presented by BBC broadcaster Sara Mohr Pietsch.

Please note this event is now fully booked and takes place at the Clore Studio Upstairs, Royal Opera House.

This is a collaboration between the Royal Opera House and Wellcome Collection in celebration of our upcoming 'THIS IS A VOICE' exhibition.
