International Vocal Coach Works Her Magic

Internationally renowned vocal coach, Dr Irene Bartlett worked with The Wedding Singer cast on Sunday, 21 July at Fairholme College.

Dr Bartlett, a Queensland Conservatorium vocal coach and senior lecturer, has been a mentor to many of Australia’s most popular voices, helping them to reach their potential, including 2016 Eurovision Song Contest finalist Dami Im and ARIA Award-winner Katie Noonan.

Dr Bartlett conducted personal sessions with the lead characters in the morning, before a masterclass with the full cast in the afternoon.

The Wedding Singer is the Toowoomba Grammar School – Fairholme College production which will be performed at the Empire Theatre from 15-17 August, 2019. It’s based on the Adam Sandler / Drew Barrymore smash hit comedy; stepping back into the fluro, lace and fingerless glove era of the 80s.

More than sixty students from the two schools have been spending the past four months at rehearsals at least twice per week and every Sunday.

Every two years Toowoomba Grammar School and Fairholme College join forces for a massive Empire Theatre production, with past hits including Titanic and Oliver Twist.
