The Warlock Singers, the chamber choir specialising in British music, is seeking to increase its membership slightly to perform larger-scale works. Plans include a performance of Elgarís Te Deum and Benedictus in October 2007 and to record the complete choral works of Peter Warlock (the choirís namesake), some with orchestra.
Experienced singers required (Kent/Surrey/Sussex)
The Warlock Singers, founded and directed by Graham Dinnage, has rapidly achieved high acclaim for its performances of British music, resulting in engagements to perform for the Ralph Vaughan Williams Society, The Peter Warlock Society and at Finchcocks Museum of Music, the latter a sell-out recital in June 2007. The choir has also commissioned a major new work for choir, soloists, harp, trumpet and organ by Matthew King, and gave its first performance in December 2006. For details of past concerts and reviews please see the choirís website www.warlock-singers.org.
The choir rehearses a few weeks before each concert on different days of the week, and seeks to accommodate its membersí other commitments. Concerts are normally held at St Maryís Church, Westerham and the same programme at a second venue, approximately three times per year. The programmes often have solo opportunities for choir members.
Experienced singers are invited to audition for the new season, starting in September 2007.
