Join The Sixteen's associate conductor Eamonn Dougan and an octet of Sixteen and Genesis Sixteen singers for a fun and rewarding afternoon of choral singing.

This workshop is part of Sounds Sublime, a special one-day choral festival curated by The Sixteen, celebrating the passion, joy and diversity of the human voice.

Led by The Sixteen’s associate conductor Eamonn Dougan, and supported by an octet of Sixteen and Genesis Sixteen singers as well as a pianist, the afternoon will include advice on vocal technique (breathing technique, invigorating warm-ups, voice production) as well as performance interpretation and historical context.

The workshop will explore Luca Marenzio’s Gaudent in coelis and Byrd’s O sacrum convivium.

We would love workshop participants to stay and watch the evening concert, which takes place in the church at 5pm and features pioneering vocal collective SANSARA. A £5 discount will be applied when a Come & Sing and evening concert ticket are purchased together in the same transaction.
