Free opera workshop coming to the region

FORGOT any thoughts of hiding a magnificent voice by singing in the shower when Opera Queensland is offering a free workshop to assist in developing voice, movement and drama skills.

The workshop is open to participants over 17 years of age and encompasses all skill levels.

No matter if you are a seasoned singer or an enthusiastic novice you are invited to attend an Open Stage community workshop and an opportunity to perform with Opera Queensland artists at the Childers Festival.

Bundaberg Regional Council's Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Judy Peters said the upcoming 20th anniversary Childers Festival was deserving of special attractions and the appearance of Opera Queensland performers is a tremendous way to highlight the occasion.

Cr Peters said five talented performers with Opera Queensland would host the workshop which would be conducted at the TAFE Queensland East Coast facility in Walker Street, Bundaberg from Tuesday July 21 to Friday July 24.

"The workshop will be held nightly between 6pm and 8pm. High schools throughout the region will also be involved in workshops during school hours.

"Upon completion of the workshop, participants are invited to join with Opera Queensland as part of a community chorus performing at "Opera by the Lake" on Saturday, July 25 and again at the Childers Festival on Sunday July 26.

"The Opera by the Lake" will be held at Lake Redbrook Holiday Retreat which will be an amazing setting for this outdoor performance," Cr Peters said.

Anyone interested in attending the workshop can register their interest by completing an online registration form located on Childers Festival website childersfestival.com.au or by contacting the Events team on 1300 883 699.
