Choral Pilgrimage Choral Workshops
Our popular Choral Pilgrimage Choral Workshops are a rare and rewarding opportunity for keen amateur singers to explore a variety of music inspired by The Sixteen’s own performances. Under the guidance of expert workshop leaders including The Sixteen’s associate conductor Eamonn Dougan, and singers Charlotte Mobbs and Julie Cooper and practical scholar Sally Dunkley, workshops include advice on vocal technique (breathing technique, invigorating warm-ups, voice production) as well as performance interpretation and historical context.
Whether you are new to the Choral Pilgrimage repertoire or want to expand your existing knowledge, our Insight Days provide a fascinating exploration into the stories behind the music.
In 2022, in partnership with the National Centre of Early Music, singer and practical scholar Sally Dunkley, and musicologist Robert Quinney will explore the music of Parry. You can expect talks, debates and anecdotes, accompanied by musical examples from a consort of Sixteen singers.
“The Insight Day was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, a skillful and meaningful communication, accessible to both expert and novice alike. Above all, it gave us a rich musical insight into the forthcoming concert. ”
