As we tour with the Choral Pilgrimage we work with various ensembles across the country.
In 2012 we launched our first Chorister Masterclass Series, visiting Carlisle, Chelmsford, Liverpool, Liverpool Metropolitan and Peterborough Cathedrals.
Choristers take part in a masterclass with a member of The Sixteen, focusing on blend, vocal technique and consort skills. Workshops are adapted to the particular needs of each group and a variety of repertoire is covered, including pieces from our Choral Pilgrimage programme. The choristers then receive complimentary tickets to join us for the evening concert.
In more recent years we have worked on repertoire from both our Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 and Choral Pilgrimage programmes. For performances related to our Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 orchestral tour, choristers from Lincoln, Derby, Peterborough, Manchester and London joined The Sixteen in singing the two final movements of the work in the evening performances.
