Breath in Vocal Technique (Lecture-workshop, 17th January)

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. Everyone is welcome to this free event on 17th January, 18:15, in Prior’s Hall, Durham Cathedral.

Breathing technique and problems of breath focus and control will be illustrated through music ranging from intimate songs written for performance in domestic or chamber-music type settings, to music in a more operatic style, written to fill larger spaces like theatres 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.

Contact for more information, or visit the event on Facebook. The Arts of Breath lecture series, organised by the Life of Breath project, continues until 14th March.
