South East Area
Due to popular demand, the Area Development Day on April 13 with Mary King is now fully booked. Please consider one of the other Development Days in other regions of the UK
The South East Area is the largest area AOTOS covers, with just over 200 members in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and London.
Past events organized by Nicola-Jane Kemp have included masterclasses with Michael Chance and Anne Murray in Cambridge, an informal Sunday afternoon get together in Clapham and a Music Theatre workshop day at St. Paul’s Girls’ School. In September 2012 we had a very successful day entitled Auditioning for Higher Education with Head of Vocal Studies – Nick Sears – a talk and masterclass around auditioning for The Royal College of Music and Wendy Gadian – a talk and masterclass about auditioning for Central School of Speech and Drama.
Future Development Days
23 February 2013
Master class with International Baritone Roderick Williams at Clare College Cambridge with invited choral scholars from across the university. Roderick is a very knowledgable and entertaining singer and composer, and this should be an exceptional day. Click here for poster and details. AOTOS members only may reserve tickets in advance by contacting Nicola-Jane Kemp at email@example.com. See Map for venue details.
13 April 2013
For our main Spring Event, I am delighted to announce that Mary King will come and give a talk/discussion followed by a master class in both Classical and Musical Theatre styles of singing on April 13th 2013 in Performing Arts Space 3, Faculty of Arts, Winchester University, Winchester SO22 4NR. See Map
Mary is a wonderful speaker and vocal coach and this is a day not to be missed. I would also love it if members could encourage local singing teachers, who are not yet members of AOTOS, to come along and see our work. This should be very popular so BOOK EARLY.
Mary’s multi-faceted career encompasses roles as performer, coach, writer and broadcaster. She currently combines work as an Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre where she directs Voicelab, with a high profile career as vocal coach for a wide range of choral, operatic and music theatre groups and solo performers, and as a writer and broadcaster on TV and radio. She has appeared in concerts and operas all over the world and is a leading exponent of contemporary vocal music. www.marykingvoice.co.uk
