Edinburgh Choral Workshop

February 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

- Free – £35

We are delighted to be bringing back our choral workshops in 2022. These sessions are the perfect way to explore some new repertoire in a relaxed and enjoyable way. Since most of us have been without regular singing for more than a year, we’ll also devote some time to vocal health and share tips on how to get your vocal cords safely back into shape.

Led by celebrated soprano and teacher Mhairi Lawson, this year’s workshops focus on Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas. Although the opera is most famous for Dido’s lament, the chorus gets some of the best music, commentating on the action as the lovers move through the frisson of early courtship to the heartbreaking conclusion of their affair.

Although some choral experience is helpful, these workshops are open to anyone who would like to improve their choral singing and learn some new repertoire. Join us for a relaxed, fun-filled day of music making, and the chance to share what you’ve learned with friends and family at the end of the day.

Ticket price includes score hire and light refreshments throughout the day.
