Students at our Cardiff Campus enjoyed a visit from top singing / vocal coach Vivien Care last week. Vivien is Musical Theatre Course Leader at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff.
Born and educated in Wales, Vivien initially trained at the Welsh College of Music and Drama, continuing her studies on the postgraduate Musical Theatre Course at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating with distinction and receiving the prestigious Mary Hammond Prize. Since then she has sustained a busy and varied career in Musical Theatre – in prominent roles in large-scale West End musicals as well as in small-scale and fringe productions, session work and radio broadcasts. She is also much in demand as a vocal consultant and coach. Recent credits include Sister Margaretta in the London Palladium production of The Sound of Music, and the 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables at the O2 arena.
Vivien’s experience as a performer and teacher, together with extensive industry links have done much to inform an approach to the training of musical theatre practitioners at the highest level, based on a thorough awareness of the interdependent disciplines of acting, singing and dance.
Our students had a fantastic day with Viv and hope she will visit us at GAMTA CYMRU again soon!
