About the course
Our Easter course gives us the opportunity to explore some beautiful Seasonal music, old and new; and our repertoire for this Easter will be confirmed soon.
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.
The course includes whole-group singing, musical games and exercises to improve sight reading and music appreciation and history.
A typical day will consist of a morning warm-up session followed by full choir practice; a mid-morning break 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 10.30 (registration from 10.00) and conclude at 3.30 (with a short concert at 3.15 or 3pm on the last day).
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.
