3rd Season in Australia

For the second year in a row, Chuck Hudson received a grant from the Dame Joan Sutherland Fund of the American-Australian Association to travel to Australia to present his Intensive Master Class Series and to Coach Audition Arias:

  • Dame Nellie Melba Opera Trust Mentor Program: Melbourne
  • Victorian Opera Young Artist Program: Melbourne
  • Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Victoria Univesity : Melbourne
  • Opera and Arts Support Group: Sydney
  • Pacific Opera Young Artist Program: Sydney
  • Sydney Conservatorium: Sydney
  • Private Coaching for Professional Singers: Sydney and Melbourne

Chuck Hudson was one of the most brilliant, revolutionary, modern, relevant and inspiring mentors we have had the privilege of working with this year. His instruction and method changed the way I approach my singing and allowed me to not only lower my guard, but to leave it down in the future and trust my intelligence and imagination implicitly. I now work more effectively and do not second guess the validity of my dramatic choices and I could not have had a more positive experience. -L.F., Soprano. Melbourne (Australia)

I just wanted to thank you again for the incredible week of masterclasses you held in Melbourne. Since then I have been making real improvements in presenting my arias and songs.This concept of specificity is so strong. Since the masterclasses I had a call back audition for a USA/Canada tour with a group called The Ten Tenors. I have now been offered the 4 month tour from Jan to May 2014. -R.B., Tenor.
