16 May - Whitworth Art Gallery

The workshop starts at 10am, so please arrive before that time.

 

We will rehearse until 12pm where we will move to The War Room and sing what we have learned so far.

 

We will then break for lunch. Unfortunately we are unable to provide lunch or refreshments, although there is a cafe at The Whitworth and various outlets on Oxford road in the local area. If it is a nice day, the park is a perfect place to relax with lunch.

 

We will reconvene at 1.15pm and sing for the afternoon session, performing again at 3pm.

 

Moving forward, we will be revisiting these pieces for the future workshops and polishing them for later performances.

 

We will be singing "O Magnum Mysterium" by Morten Lauridsen and "Ave Verum" by Philip Stopford. There will be two other pieces if we get to them, but we will keep these as a surprise for the moment!  

 

You can see performances of these pieces on YouTube:

 

O Magnum Mysterium

Ave Verum

 

As we mentioned, the workshop will cost £5, or you can become a full member of the choir (which will include all workshops and performances this year) for £30. This will need to be paid on the day, before the rehearsal starts. If you are unsure if you can make the other events, you can pay £5 for the workshop, and top up with £25 at a later date.

 

Good luck practicing and we will be in touch a little closer to the event with any further details. Please feel free to drop us an email if you have any questions.
