About the course
This course is designed for those aged 7-12.
2 days – Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 July.
3 days – Wednesday 27, Thursday 28 and Friday 30 July.
Our 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.
A typical day will consist of a morning warm-up session followed by full choir practice; a mid-morning break and smaller group sessions where we will cover some music history & appreciation. After lunch, there will be further smaller 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 onwards) and conclude at 3.30 (with a short concert at 3.15 or 3pm on the last day).
Participants may attend for the whole week, two consecutive days or three consecutive days.

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.
