Goa Chitra Ethnographic Museum, Benaulim will host
another season of
international quality vocal tuition and coaching in western music, the Giving Voice
to India (GVI) programme from July 4 to July 8
Giving Voice to India (GVI) is the brainchild of opera soprano, Patricia Rozario, professor of Voice at London’s prestigious Royal College of Music, and recipient of the Order of the British Empire in the year 2001, along with husband-pianist, Mark Troop.
It employs the Bel Canto Technique which results in a voice with resonance and purity of tone, consistency across the registers of the voice, a high degree of breath control, excellent projection, and longevity of the voice. Furthermore the course ensures correct pronunciation in the basic European languages used for singing – Italian, German, French and English, and in-depth stylistic training.
Giving Voice to India is into its tenth successful year where the singers discover not only the joy in singing well, but also get the chance to appear in concerts associated with the course. In July 2017, GVI produced a fully staged opera, ‘Il Matrimonio Segreto’ by Domenico Cimarosa.
It was staged at the Royal Opera House in Bombay and played to four sold out houses.
In July 2018, GVI produced its second fully staged full length opera ‘La Fedelta Premiata’ by Josef Haydn and was staged at the Royal Opera House, Bombay.
Their upcoming course at Goa Chitra Ethnographic Museum, Benaulim will comprise of two half day sessions in place of the original whole day. There will be a morning session from 9 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. and an afternoon session from 2 to 6 p.m. This allows the student to get exactly the same amount of tuition at half the number of hours. This leaves the student free to practice and learn in their own time between the sessions, absorbing the fruits of the work. Students from one session are free to sit in for the other session should they wish, on the express understanding that they will not participate.
