On October 17, 2022, the “Ne zrya” Inclusive Laboratory classes were conducted by the head of the musical department of the Bolshoi Drama Theater Anna Vishnyakova and director Dimitry Krestyankin.
Anna Vishnyakova shared professional advice and taught the participants vocal techniques: how to control your voice, how to find the right sounds in your voice, how to take pitch and tone. Dimitry Krestyankin conducted a sound workshop in groups.
The project is implemented by the PRO ARTE Foundation — with the grant provided by the Vladimir Potanin Charitable Foundation, and with the support of the Committee for Culture and Committee for Social Policy of St. Petersburg.
