Half Term One day Course for Halloween
Mixed: A wonderful selection of spooky music to excite and entertain young musicians
About the course
Courses are structured so that each day will conclude with an informal concert, and the week with a special concert featuring some of the music rehearsed during the week.
This is a unque one day course at Bradford Cathedral this half term. The course includes whole-group singing, musical games and exercises to improve sight reading and small group vocal coaching with a singing coach. Every care will be taken to provide age and experience-appropriate tuition.
A typical day will consist of a morning warm-up session followed by full choir practice; a mid-morning break (fruit juice and biscuits provided) and smaller group sessions. After lunch, there will be further group sessions, focusing on music reading and theory before a final full choir practice and sing-through.
Each day will begin at 9.30 (registration from 9.00) and conclude at 3.30, with a short concert at 3.15 to which family are welcome to attend.
About the venue
The first church on the site was built in Anglo-Saxon times. During the 14th century the church was rebuilt and some of the older masonry may have been used in the reconstruction of the nave. The nave arcades, the oldest parts of the present building, were completed in 1458.
Originally in the Diocese of York, the church was in the Diocese of Ripon before becoming a cathedral in 1919, when the Diocese of Bradford was created.
Bradford Cathedral has long been a special place of music and singing and therefore a wonderful place to host a Singing School.
