Bob Chilcott: Requiem - a one-day singing workshop (27/03/10) Can't Post

Fresh from premieres in Oxford, London and the USA, celebrated contemporary composer Bob Chilcott leads a workshop for singers on his new work, Requiem.

Saturday 27th March - 11am-5pm
St Michael's Church, Bishop's Stortford.

Adults £10, children £5, music provided free of charge.

Chilcott’s compositions, including ‘Be thou my vision’ and ‘The Lily
and the Rose’ are well-established in the contemporary choral
repertoire, and are appreciated by singers for their melodic lines and
eminent ‘singability’. The composer has just completed his Requiem,
which will première in Oxford on 13th March, and in the USA on 21st
March. The very next weekend, the composer himself will bring this
exciting new work to St Michael’s Church, Bishop’s Stortford.

This is a unique opportunity to sing a brand new work, which will
undoubtedly soon form part of the established choral repertoire
alongside Requiems by Rutter, Fauré, Duruflé and Mozart. Bob Chilcott
is a vibrant and inspiring director who knows how to get a group of
singers singing their best. The workshop promises to improve singers’
technique in an enjoyable way, while learning an exciting new piece of
repertoire at the hands of the composer himself.

The day will run from 11am until 5pm (registration from 10am),
finishing with a performance of the work with invited soloists. Tea
and cake will be served, but participants should bring a packed lunch.
