About the course
The Seniors Course will focus on developing auditory skills and consort style singing. The Seniors group is typically between 10 and 15 singers.
Courses are structured so that each day will conclude with an informal concert, and the course with a special concert featuring some of the music rehearsed during the course.
A typical day will consist of a morning warm-up session combined with the Juniors in the chapel, after which time the Seniors will go to the St Catharine’s Choir room, where they will be based.
Each day will begin at 9.30 (registration from 9.00) and conclude at 3.30 (with a short concert at 3.15 or 3pm on the last day). There will be a short break mid morning and afternoon plus a longer lunch break. The concert will be combined with the Juniors.
About the venue
St Catharine’s College was founded in 1473 and is situated in the historic city-centre of Cambridge, just south of King’s College and across the street from Corpus Christi College. The college is notable for its open court (rather than closed quadrangle) that faces towards Trumpington Street.
St Catharine’s boasts a fine musical tradition and the rites of the Church of England are enriched by the excellent contribution of the Choir and Organ Scholars. The three-manual organ is one of the finest instruments in Cambridge today and the Chapel is a popular venue for recitals and other performances.
