Emerging classical vocalist, Daniela ‘Bella’ Jedrzejczak, will travel to Western Australia in November and December to receive specialised tuition in voice and acting with opera singer, Patricia Price and director, Chris Edmund.
In an effort to broaden her musical and performance horizon and to enrich her skills through exposure to different teaching styles and methods, Bella will be spending a month in Perth to receive one-on-one lessons from two of Australia’s leading figures in the Performing arts.
Patricia Price is an internationally acclaimed opera singer and the Coordinator of Vocal Studies and Opera at the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), while Chris Edmund is coordinator and Senior Lecturer for Acting at WAAPA and has taught many of Australia’s most high profile actors, including Hugh Jackman.
“As an emerging soprano, it is my personal goal to develop a unique set of wings to help me soar in the highly competitive world of opera. To do this, I believe it is imperative one collaborates with a broader range of professional artists and academics,” Bella explains. “Patricia can offer me a wealth of knowledge and experience after a long and distinguished career as an opera singer in Europe and Australia, while Chris Edmund will be able to enlighten me on a range of skills through one-on-one acting workshops.”
Bella is currently completing a Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree at the University of Adelaide’s Elder Conservatorium, specialising in classical voice with Guila Tiver.
The Elder Conservatorium is a Helpmann Academy partner institution. Bella’s professional development tour in Western Australia has been supported by a Helpmann Academy grant.
The Helpmann Academy for the Visual & Performing Arts assists emerging artists to make the leap into professional practice, by providing a range of programs and opportunities including exhibitions, awards, grants, mentorships and international exchanges.
