Michael Haydn: Requiem in C minor (Missa pro defuncto Archiepiscopo Sigismondo)
Sing Vivaldi's Gloria with a virtual choir
Join Run-by-Singers in a performance of Vivaldi's Gloria.
Rehearsals start on 9 March - at different times for different sections. They're all broadcast live on YouTube which means you can join in at a time that suits YOU if any of the live rehearsals don't suit. You can pause the rehearsal, rewind, and repeat as many times as you want to during the course. After rehearsals finish we invite you to send in a recording (audio only) for inclusion in our online concert on 24 April. Once our engineers have mastered and mixed all the individual performances we will create an MP3 album which will be available for download.
The whole experience costs £29.95. More information
News from Tim
Tim is continuing to teach piano through these restricted times using Zoom. Here's what he says: "This has proved to be a successful means of learning at the piano (more so than choral singing!) and people may have more time on their hands. I have a number of adults as well as children learning from 5 to 75. I also have a small collection of pianos available which I can deliver."
Tim plays Mia and Sebastian’s Theme from La La Land, composed by Justin Hurwitz.
You can contact Tim by phone on 01234 853399 or email.
