This day for enthusiastic singers is dedicated to exploring a range of choral music from the last 500 years. We will aim to look at music from each century, ranging back as far as the Renaissance right up to music written by living composers, and everything in between. Some of the music we look at will be well known to experienced singers, but we will also throw in a few surprises and give you some new repertoire ideas and experiences. There may even be a world premiere!
We welcome all singers to what we hope will be a fun and engaging day. However, in order to cover a range of repertoire, we do ask that singers have some choral experience and a reasonable level of sight reading ability.
