Choral Workshop with The Gesualdo Six
Join us for this exciting opportunity to sing and learn with the UK's finest consort singers in a Festival Choral Workshop 'live on Zoom'.
The Gesualdo Six is an award-winning British vocal ensemble comprising some of the UK’s finest consort singers, directed by Owain Park.
In the week leading up to their stunning Festival Concert filmed Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Conductor and composer Owain and members of the ensemble will host a Festival Choral Workshop 'live on Zoom'.
Owain and his team will take singers through a number of pieces in four-parts (SATB) from different periods. The workshop will last around 90 minutes and include a short Q&A at the end where you can put your questions to Owain.
Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance so we can email sheet music details to you prior to the event. You may wish to print off your copy so you can follow it.
If you're a sight-reader, then you'll be all set for the workshop. Enjoy the opportunity to learn from Owain and his team about technique and phrasing, and let the notes take care of themselves.
If you don't sight-read, you may want to listen to the music in advance to make things easier on the day. We will publish some links here in due course.
Love singing but not that confident? Don't worry... nobody will hear you! The workshop will run with the audience muted so that you can sing confidently at home along with the sound track, while Owain conducts.
Booking is now open. You must register for the event (even if you have a Full Festival of Classical Pass). We will email you the Zoom login details approximately 24 hours before.
