About the course
Courses are structured so that each day will conclude with an informal concert, and the end of the course with a special concert featuring the music rehearsed during the week.
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, another short break (with fruit juice and biscuits provided) and a final sing-through before the concert.
Each day will begin at 9.30 (registration from 9 am) and conclude at 3.30 (with a short concert at 3.15pm or 3pm on the last day).
About the venue
Holy Trinity is a wonderful Anglican church in the centre of Guildford. A large, red brick building, it was built in the early 1760s on the site of a mediaeval church which collapsed in the mid-18th century.
It is the only large Georgian church in Surrey, sporting detailed frescos of the Crucifixion surrounded by the Saints and the Ascended Lord in Heaven, as well as one of the largest unsupported ceilings in southern England. It is a Grade I listed building.
From 1927, when the when the diocese of Guildford was created, until 1961, when the current cathedral was consecrated, it served as a pro – cathedral.
A beautiful church with a thriving music community and choir.
