From the Royal Albert Hall to WAAPA’s Spiegeltent, acclaimed British vocal coach, Mary King, invites aspiring singers and bathroom singers to learn choruses from the greatest musical theatre shows in this awesome and entertaining workshop, culminating in a joyous public concert in Edith Cowan University (ECU)'s spiegeltent, 'The Edith’ at 2 Bradford St, Mount Lawley on Saturday, 18 March at 7.30pm.
Mary King says she can teach anyone to sing. In the past 30 years she has taught opera singers, pop singers, amateur singers and one "plain awful singer" who went on to star in a musical at the Hackney Empire in London. As part of the Channel 4 series Operatunity, she coached a checkout girl from Tesco, who ended up singing professionally. More recently, she prepared Ewan McGregor for Guys And Dolls and coached Maureen Lipman for her role in Glorious!, in which she played Florence Foster Jenkins, an American heiress who financed her own soprano concerts and acquired a cult following for the excruciating awfulness of her singing.
And now Mary is going to teach you!
Participants will enjoy a day of workshops and rehearsals which will culminate in a joyous public concert in the evening for your friends, family and all lovers of music theatre.
Don’t miss this opportunity to become a professional singer for a day. Places are limited; to participate in the workshops please Register Now.
