Opera and vocal workshops are offered throughout the year by Gwyneth Lloyd. Her in-depth group and individual vocal training is based on the tension-free principles of the Alexander Technique. Gwyneth's extensive experience of not only running and musically directing East Cape Opera Company, but also creating brand new works for opera ensembles, gives her great insight into workshop facilitating from both a technical and creative perspective. if you would like to be involved with East Cape Opera or if you have a group of singers who would like to work with Gwyneth, please contact us.
