The New Zealand School of Music host a masterclass from Australian baritone Warwick Fyfe.

Warwick was born in Canberra and obtained his musical education at the Canberra School of Music and the Victoria College of the Arts. He took part in the Victoria State Opera and Opera Australia Young Artist programs, later becoming a full time soloist with Opera Australia. Warwick was a McDonald’s Aria winner (1998), and has been the recipient of a Green Room Award (for his Schaunard in La bohème). Other awards include: the Moniuszko aria prize (Warsaw), a Bayreuth Bursary, the Dame Mabel Brooks, and the prestigious Bayreuth Scholarship (2007).

In the course of his long association with Opera Australia, Warwick has consistently produced outstanding performances in diverse repertoire. Warwick has worked with most Australian state opera companies: In 1998, his Fasolt in The State Opera of South Australia’s production of Der Ring des Nibelungen was received with critical acclaim. His most recent overseas engagement was as Taddeo in New Zealand Opera’s highly successful production of L’Italiana in Algieri. He has also performed Bartolo in Le Nozze di Figaro in Hong Kong.

Concert engagements include performances with the Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland, West Australian, Adelaide and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras; the Warsaw Symphony Orchestra, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Symphony Orchestra; the Melbourne Chorale; Sydney Philarmonia; Royal Melbourne Philarmonic Society and the Canberra Choral Society. Innumerable concert works performed include: Orff’s Carmina Burana; Handel’s Messiah; Beethoven's Symphony No.9; Mozart's Requiem; Bach's St Matthew Passion and Mass in B minor; Brahms’ A German Requiem.

Warwick’s recordings include CDs of Brahms Liebeslieder Waltzes Op.52 (Move Records), The Love for Three Oranges (Chandos), Classic 100 Opera Concert (ABC) and Operatunity Oz (ABC), and DVDs of Opera Australia 50th Anniversary Gala Concert and Operatunity Oz.

NZSM classical voice students will take part in this masterclass, but observers and audience are welcome to attend. Free admission.

Held in the Adam Concert Room.
