Breathing and vocal technique
The third event of the Arts of Breath series will be practical lecture-workshop conducted by classical singing teacher Miranda Wright with some of her regular vocal students to illustrate the place of trained breathing in vocal technique.
Breathing technique and problems of breath focus and control will be illustrated through music ranging from works in an intimate style, songs written for performance in domestic or chamber-music type settings, to music in a more operatic style, written for performance in the theatre, filling larger spaces and presenting somewhat different breathing problems.
Miranda Wright is a masterclass leader for Samling Academy and Head of Classical Singing at Newcastle University. She also teaches many undergraduates from Durham University, choristers at Durham Cathedral and other singers across the North East.
