You and the world are in lockdown and you may be left feeling unmotivated, drained and overwhelmed, so how on earth do you stay motivated?

Firstly, don’t beat yourself up, it is okay not to be okay! Understandably, right now there is a struggle to keep up with your day to day life and the news, let alone your training and own self-development.

As an actor or singer, whichever you identify as, it may well feel like the industry is non-existent. Those long-awaited jobs, contracts and meetings you ha...

A flashback to 2018 when Theresa Goble interviewed one of our esteemed Patrons, the international bass Peter Rose. Here he is backstage at Bayreuth, chatting about his experiences of singing Wagner amongst other things. We hope you enjoy it.

Whether you are a singer studying music at conservatoire, are a passionate amateur, or looking to invest in a period of professional development,  summer courses, workshops and masterclasses are a great way to expand your knowledge, learn new insights and meet new teachers and colleagues, often times in beautiful places that are far from the routine of your daily practicing, work or student life. The intensive nature of such courses means that often exciting  shifts of awareness and improvement...

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what can one say about a video?

We at Vox just can’t get over what an incredible job our videographer has done with the footage he took during his short two day visit in Feltre during our 2019 Staged Opera Scenes Workshop.

In fact, we can’t stop watching it - even if it actually only depicts the culmination of what was an incredibly intense week of hard work - lessons, rehearsals, masterclasses and performances.

We love it because it captures so much of...

I’ve always had a love / hate relationship with working in Italy. I like to PLAN. Ideally with colored pens! I like to use timelines, spreadsheets and budgets when organizing an event. Which, in Italy, in all honesty, is about as naive as thinking that you can make nonna’s perfect lasagna by using a written (gasp!) recipe.

The most frustrating thing is that there seems to be no direct correlation between the hard work you put in and the actual outcome. Most of the time, when you work your ass off...

A common mistake is that in the excitement of being accepted to audition, singers often forget to read the actual requirements of the institution or company they’re auditioning for. Apart from the logistics, which are obviously critical, such as the correct date, time, venue, accompanist provided or not, following are some other important factors to consider.

Conservatoire:

Every Conservatoire has different requirements so please double check the relevant website to ensure you know exactly what th...

AUDITION SEASON IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!


"Start thinking ahead and doing what is necessary for a healthy next couple of months. Audition season begins in November... so think about eating healthily, drinking the right amount of water to stay "moist and well lubricated" sleeping about 8 hours, taking some good walks in the fresh air and building up vocal stamina. When you are a bit tired, instead of stopping work, do some head work on your pieces, think about the text, the performance, all the...

The second edition of the Feltre Staged Opera Scenes course was another great success.

Highlights included an impromptu jazz sing-along jam session, a masterclass with world renowned mezzo-soprano Jean Rigby, and two end-of-workshop performances: the first in “La Piccola Fenice”, Feltre’s Teatro de la Sena and the second in the stunning Palazzo Guarnieri.

Both concerts had a great turnout and the response from audiences on both nights was hugely positive.

Participants described their experience of...
