Why not join Worcester Festival Choral Society and friends for our exhilarating 'Come and Sing' day on Saturday 1st April 2017 - and experience Sir Edward Elgar's choral classic, The Dream of Gerontius

This exciting choral workshop will take place in The King’s School's historic College Hall, located in College Green, behind Worcester Cathedral. Registration will be from 9:30am, with the day concluding after the informal performance, at around 5:00pm.  

The workshop offers amateur singers of all kinds the chance to rehearse and informally perform one of the great, classical choral works in just one day, under the superb, enjoyable musical direction of Assistant Director of Music at Worcester Cathedral - and Chair of the Board of Trustees at the Elgar School of Music - Christopher AllsopAccompanying us (in a change to original details) will be Assistant Director of Music at St. Mary's, Warwick, Mark Swinton.

We are also delighted to welcome talented soloists Felicity Rogers (soprano), Dominic Lee (tenor) and Wil Gee (bass) to help deliver the work's full, glorious effect during our end-of-the-day, informal 'performance' of the work. This informal performance takes place in College Hall from 3.40pm - 4.45pm approx - and if you are a participant, you can invite your friends or family to come and listen from the upstairs balcony, free of charge!

You don't have to have choral experience, but it helps if you can read music. Hire of music scores, and free tea and coffee, are provided within the ticket price of £20 (full time students £10). 

Participation is by pre-booked ticket only; booking deadline NOW 6pm FRIDAY 31st MARCH (though packed lunch ordering now closed)
