North Wales Opera Studio is excited to announce a weekend of workshops with James Black (James Black Management). These will take place on the 3rd and 4th July, 10:30am to 6pm at Black Park, Chirk (Near Wrexham).

BIO:

Born in Canterbury, James Black read Music at Magdalen College, Oxford, and studied Singing and Piano at the Royal College of Music, London. Appearing as James Huw Jeffries, his operatic career as a countertenor included principal roles for the English Bach Festival Trust, the Netherlands Opera and the Royal Danish Opera and seasons at the Südostbayerisches Städtetheater and the Theater Magdeburg as well as major covers for the English National Opera and the Royal Opera in London.

As a concert artist, he performed throughout the UK (including appearances at the Aldeburgh, Brighton and Edinburgh Festivals, the Barbican Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and St John’s, Smith Square) as well as in Canada, France, Germany, the Irish Republic, The Netherlands and Norway.

As an Agent, he is now delighted to bring his experience of the music industry to James Black Management. His aim is to provide informed advice and decision making, based upon an acute appreciation of his artists’ current achievements and potential, supported by a wide–ranging knowledge of roles and repertoire and a realistic understanding of promoters’ needs.

James Black also enjoys working with young artists on matters musical and professional, undertaking sessions for organisations including the Royal Northern College of Music, the Pelagian Opera Festival, the Vienna Opera Academy, the Fabbrica of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and the Meitar Opera Studio of the Israeli Opera.
