The ever-popular Dunedin Choral Workshops make a welcome return this winter. This season’s series explores music for voices and brass instruments by Renaissance luminaries Andrea Gabrieli, Giovanni Gabrieli and Heinrich Schütz, alongside works by the 19th-century masters Brahms and Bruckner, whose approach to vocal writing was transformed by their discoveries of these earlier composers. Participants will enjoy the opportunity of working on both some familiar and lesser-known repertory, with input and coaching from Dunedin’s professional singers taking into account the speci c stylistic and technical challenges posed by these pieces.
The intensive weekend workshop will be led by our musical director John Butt and the day workshops in Aberdeen and Glasgow, focusing on a select number of pieces, will be led by choral director Ed Caswell. These will culminate on a public performance with all participants directed by John Butt on the 4th of February at Glasgow’s Bute Hall.
Whether you are a seasoned choral singer, or are relatively new and looking to brush up your skills, you’re sure to learn a lot and enjoy yourself at the same time.
Scores are included within the price (Weekend attendees can keep their copies). Places are limited, so early booking is advised!
