Young choristers were given a lesson from a master during a rehearsal for the upcoming Victorian State Schools Spectacular.
During the 3 August visit, professional vocalist Rob Latham led a 50-strong choir of students from Narre Warren South P-12 College and Berwick Lodge Primary School.
Latham, who has toured extensively as an opera and a capella singer, once sang with the spectacular’s Mass Choir as a student in 1995. He was the principal vocalist for the spectacular in 2001.
Since then he’s performed in opera companies and groups such as the male a capella group Suade.
The students have been practising for months ahead of joining 1000 others from 59 Victorian state schools in an enormous mass choir at the schools spectacular in September.
The event hosts more than 3000 students taking part in dance, music, song, puppetry and magic as well as behind the scenes on lights, audio and stage management.
“It’s a massive production for all involved and a magnificent experience for students,” a spokeswoman for the spectacular said.
The Victorian State Schools Spectacular performs two shows at Hisense Arena on Saturday, 16 September.
