SUMMER COURSE 2019
|Venue||St John's Cathedral, Hong Kong|
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).
