Art Society Art Talk: The Opera Singer Phenomenon – How do they make that noise?
Wed 08 Feb 2023
See below for details
We will explore the origins and development of that odd artistic beast, the opera singer. We will explore why and how that extraordinary noise they make has come about. We will also look at some of the challenges facing the singer in performance. The talk is aimed to engage those that don’t necessarily like opera as an art form as much as those that do.
