Choral Workshop

with guest director
Director of Music, Organist & Master of the Choristers, Christchurch Priory

Come and join The Quayside Choir for an exciting and inspiring day of singing at Upton Community Centre. The Workshop will be led by Simon Earl, Director of Music, Organist & Master of the Choristers at Christchurch Priory, Dorset. Simon is a highly experienced Choral Director and organist – he is the founder of the Christchurch Festival Chorus and musical director of Christchurch Priory Music & Arts Festival. Simon maintains a busy recital schedule, is an examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and is regularly invited to lead and accompany choral events in the UK and abroad.

This ‘Come & Sing’ workshop will feature sections from Carl Orff’s dramatic ‘Carmina Burana’, through which Simon will focus on vocal and choral technique, musicianship and interpretation. No prior knowledge of the music is required, although the ability to read music would be an advantage.

Please note, singers under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult. The fee covers music hire, morning coffee and afternoon tea & cakes. You will need to provide your own lunch.
