A voice masterclass with Ema Nikolovska will take place on Monday, April 15 from 10 am until 12 noon in Talbot College room 101. All are welcome to attend.

Acclaimed for her expressive abilities and vast repertoire, Canadian-Macedonian mezzo-soprano Ema Nikolovska is gaining a reputation as “one to watch”. She was a BBC New Generation Artist from 2019-2022 and won first prize at the International Vocal Competition in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Ferrier Loveday Song Prize (Kathleen Ferrier Awards), and was a prize winner at the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) International Auditions. She will be accompanied by Canadian pianist and past Parsons and Poole distinguished artist Charles Richard-Hamelin, "a musician-pianist: fluent, multi-faceted and tonally seductive" (BBC Music Magazine).
