Brian Kay and Dame Ann MurrayVocal Course, 18 - 24 May 2020

Sing the Fauré Requiem

In one of the most beautiful villages in France

It is with deepest regret that we have decided that, in view of government advice concerning Covid-19 (Corona Virus), it is prudent and in the public interest to cancel this course.

In an unforgettable musical experience we are inviting experienced choral singers and advanced soloists to come together in two separate courses tutored by two of the best known vocal coaches in the UK.

The two courses will run concurrently with separate coaching and tuition, but with joint concerts, masterclasses, events and activities.

Throughout your stay we will be hosting informal concerts, social events, talks and visits.

Will I Fit in?

To get the most from our Choral Course you will have had some choral singing experience and maybe even sung some of the works before. An ability to read music is useful though not essential, however you should have a confident singing voice, enthusiasm and an ability to learn quickly. Please visit our frequently asked questions page or feel free to contact us if you need more information.

For more advanced vocalists Ann Murray’s Soloists Course welcomes applications in all voice ranges.  There is an online procedure giving you the opportunity to apply and send a recording of yourself. If you wish to be considered for the soloists course please fill in our application form.

The closing date for applications is 1st May 2020.
