Singing in 2021 

Want to sing some splendid choral repertoire? Concert opportunities looking a little sparse? We may well have the answer. I am hosting open choir rehearsals every Wednesday at 5.30pm London time starting on 7th July, 2021. All rehearsals are online using Zoom and last one hour. These sessions will include the chorus movements from Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle. Watch the video below to find out more information. Look forward to seeing you there!
