VOICE-OVER COACHES APPOINTED BY THE NOLA VOICE TALENT FOUNDATION AS WORKSHOPS PROGRAM EXPANDS


The Nola Voice Talent Foundation has appointed George Trahanis and Jacques Pourciau as accredited voice coaches.


Both Jacques and George have progressed through the program under the tutelage of leading voice coach Stephen James, who founded NVT in 2009 to provide affordable education and opportunities in voice and to encourage the use of our talent to support the community.

The appointments mark the expansion of NVT's mid-week voice-over workshop program as the Foundation enters its 10th year. George Trahanis becomes a co-host with Stephen James at the NEW ORLEANS workshops held every two weeks, while Jacques Pourciau will host re-launched workshops every two weeks in BATON ROUGE after the program's brief absence in the city.


The workshops program in BILOXI has been extended to every TWO weeks as a result of its huge success during the spring 2018 semester, hosted by Stephen James.
