After her stunning debut in 2019 we welcome back Katie Thomas to direct our second week choral course.  

This year’s programme is centred around the “sublime to celebratory” Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage by Beethoven which will be contrasted by three settings of the fourteenth century vesper hymn, Ave Maris Stella and the deeply moving and genuinely spiritual Symphony of Psalms by Stravinsky. These works will be performed in a concert with orchestral accompaniment given at the end of the week.

On the final morning, after the concert on the previous evening, the course will explore excerpts from Vaughan Williams’ magnificent Sea Symphony (copies provided) concluding what will be an  altogether truly uplifting and enthralling singers feast. Don’t miss it!
