For many years, Opera Guild of Rochester has delivered free lectures on a wide range of opera topics. We do these to provide historical background and musical context for operas and composers, and to present operas that the audience might otherwise not have access to or that might prove difficult to understand or appreciate.
This lecture is unique in that it focuses on how the voice develops, and how proper coaching can influence an operatic career.
