JS Bach St Matthew Passion Workshop led by Derek Harrison

Saturday 29th February 2020 9:30am - 4:30pm at Richard Hale School, Hertford, SG13 8EN

This workshop is an opportunity to

  • Sing with HCS in preparation for our performance of St Matthew Passion (in English) on Saturday 4th April at All Saints’ Church in Hertford
  • Hear more about the composer and the work from an expert in the subject during a lunchtime talk
  • Get help on how to meet the technical challenges of singing Bach’s music
  • Sing through the whole work at the end of the afternoon

Whilst this workshop is open to all and we will be delighted to welcome guests, please be aware that some experience of singing this work is strongly advised. This is not a “bring and sing” workshop but you will be joining HCS for a rehearsal in preparation for our concert.

We currently still have workshop spaces available for Altos, Tenors and Basses. Please note places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The closing date for registration is 22nd February.
