Come and Sing! Beethoven's Mass in C - One-Day Workshop

Saturday 6th April 2019 - Beethoven's Mass in C

Love singing? You are invited to join amateur singers from across the country for this one-day choral workshop hosted by Worcester Festival Choral Society, exploring Beethoven’s majestic Mass in C in the magnificent surroundings of Worcester Cathedral.

The day will include singing, vocal tips, teamwork and an informal performance – all in the company of around 100 other musically minded people. A superb chance to discover a choral classic for the first time, or brush up on a favourite choral gem in a friendly atmosphere.

Wondering if it’s for you? Look at our photo gallery below, read the testimonials, and try it for yourself!


You’ll enjoy an engaging, one-day rehearsal of Beethoven’s superb Mass in C, under the expert choral direction of Worcester Festival Choral Society's incoming Conductor Samuel Hudson, and seated with others in your voice part (SATB).

You don't have to have choral experience, but some ability to read music is useful.

We’ll lend you a vocal score for the day, and lay on free tea and coffee within the ticket price. You can also treat yourself to our home-made cake, pre-order one of our delicious packed lunches, or eat at the Cathedral café or one of historic Worcester's many nearby restaurants.

After the day’s three singing sessions, we conclude with an informal afternoon performance starting at 3:40pm in the same venue … which family and friends can attend free of charge.
