Unearthing young operatic talent at Childers Festival
CHILDERS students and community groups will take the stage with an operatic performance at this year’s Childers Festival.
Opera Queensland and Bundaberg Regional Council have joined to bring free creative singing workshops to the region’s schools.
Project director Cienda McNamara said she was excited to be working with the Childers community to inspire a love of singing.
“The Opera Queensland team and I can not wait to discover what talent is waiting for us in Childers,” she said.
“We have some incredibly fine singers on board, including Adele King, Dania Cornelius and Craig Atkinson who, alongside music director Luke Volker, will help workshop participants with their creative expression and voice work.”
The workshops will begin on Wednesday, July 23 at local schools in the region.
On Saturday, July 26 the workshops will be run at the Isis Cultural Centre.
It will culminate in a performance by the artists and workshop participants at 1pm on Sunday, July 27, at Paragon Theatre.
