Under the guest artistic direction of international mezzo soprano Tara Erraught,from 31 January to 2 February, Drogheda will become the centre for a weekend of seminars, interviews, masterclasses, concerts and much more all focused around the voice. Tara Erraught is one of the leading lights in the operatic world at present and brings her wealth of singing experience to audiences in and around her home county of Louth. Much in demand on the concert and opera stages, Tara has learned how vital vocal health is to her career and that this relates to so much more than just avoiding coughs and colds. To this end, Tara’s own Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, Dr Paul Kwak will travel from New York to give a talk on the importance of vocal health. There will be a yoga seminar and session by qualified yoga instructor, Emma Wallace Ahern . Learn more about the inner workings of a singing class when Tara coaches some of the finest emerging singing talent from the region. All masterclasses and concerts will feature RTÉ lyric FM broadcaster Liz Nolan who will engage with Tara throughout and help explain the process.
A special weekend pass is available for €60 to include attendance at all masterclasses, talks and concerts (with the exception of the yoga class).
