Take time off in August 2014 to join us for The Scratch® Choral Summer School where choral singing will be at the heart of everything. Study two celebrated 20th-century choral classics: John Rutter’s exuberant setting of the Gloria, and Maurice Duruflé’s wonderfully evocative Requiem. Participate in workshops on choral technique (intonation, sight singing, blend, breath control), light music and part-songs; relax in the delightful landscape of the Warwick University campus; and visit some of England’s most renowned cultural sites.
Those taking part in The Scratch® Choral Summer School in 2014 will:
• rehearse the two main choral works daily with Brian Kay;
• perform in Coventry Cathedral with the English Symphony Orchestra and young prize-winning soloists;
• explore other areas of choral singing and vocal technique in afternoon workshops with Kerry Beaumont, Christopher Finch and Brian Kay;
• enjoy comfortable accommodation and delicious meals on the attractive Warwick University campus.
There will also be optional excursions to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s performance of Two Gentlemen of Verona and to visit Warwick Castle; or you can take the opportunity to explore for yourselves the many wonderful ‘Heart of England’ attractions.
