Our Choral Workshops are led by The Sixteen’s associate conductor and bass Eamonn Dougan and singer and practical scholar Sally Dunkley. Local singing enthusiasts are treated to a session of vocal coaching including advice on breathing technique, invigorating warm-ups, voice production and insights into the historical context of the Choral Pilgrimage music.
In 2018, the music that will be explored in the workshops are:
Britten Hymn to the Virgin
Cornysh Salve Regina (excerpts)
Britten ‘Carol’ from Sacred and Profane (4 hr workshops only)
Exact repertoire for 2019 Choral Workshops will be confirmed in autumn 2018, however the workshop will be based on the 2019 Choral Pilgrimage tour, details of which you can find below.
