About the course
Courses are structured to include group singing, developing range and vocal technique, music history, music theory in the form of musical games and exercises and music appreciation. Singing lessons will also be provided in small groups. Parents are welcome to attend the informal concerts at the end of the day.
Each day will begin at 9.30 and conclude at 3.30. There will be a lunch break plus two additional breaks. There will also be singing lessons in small groups with a specialist singing teacher.
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. The music will be listed on our website as well as sent out to our mailing list in advance of the course so that participants can listen to the pieces in advance of the course.
This repertoire for this Easter will be confirmed soon.

About the venue
Worcester College is situated in the heart of Oxford, with its many attractions and amenities, yet behind the College walls lie 26 acres of beautiful, tranquil gardens. Its buildings range from medieval cottages to a newest architectural project, the Nazrin Shah Building, due for completion in 2016. The college also has a library, chapel and dining hall created by some of Britain’s finest 18th and 19th Century architects.
The College Chapel was completed in 1791, but its interior was transformed into the riot of colour, humour and detail that it is today by William Burges in 1864. The paintings and woodwork include many jokes, whilst the animals at the ends of the pews are a mixture of the weird and wonderful, including a unicorn and blue whale.
