Over the last two weeks, entries have been flooding in for our Vocal Alchemy Singing Workshop Giveaway, and we are pleased to announce that winners have now been selected for the Brisbane and Melbourne Broadway Voice Workshops.
The entries have been poured over by Tim and Laura at Vocal Alchemy and they have chosen winners based on their specific questions about the voice.
At the conclusion of each workshop Tim Smith will address each specific question and provide answers for AussieTheatre readers.

For her question…
How do I achieve a strong, and consistent Broadway belt when all my training has been in classical and bel canto technique. I have great control of my low/middle/high registers, and am very familiar with all the different resonators, but why do i struggle to achieve volume and a powerful attack comfortably? What happens when a trained singer does not practice their scales and song work daily even though they have a strong understanding of proper placement and support. Is it true that a singer will loose their technique completely if regular practice is not completed daily?
Our Brisbane Participant place goes to:
For her question…
How do I get past that breaking point of your voice when you know you can sing further but your voice starts to break and go all shakey like when a boys voice cracks. How do you get past that and hit the big notes?
And in addition we have added a special commendation for the most humorous and creative question…
For this an Observer place goes to
for her priceless question …
Why do I get angry when Kyle Sandilands disses Musical Theatre in public?
Congratulations to all of our winners!
