Cathedral Choristers of Britain – Chorister Workshop 2018
A free one-day workshop for the Cathedral Choristers of Britain with Dominic Ellis-Peckham and Suzzie Vango
Saturday 20 October 2018, Birmingham Cathedral
Following the Cathedral Choristers of Britain’s concert in St Paul’s Cathedral (to launch Friends of Cathedral Music’s Diamond Fund for Choristers) and their subsequent CD recording, we have been looking into ways of building on their success.
We were delighted to secure the services of two excellent choral directors, Dominic Ellis-Peckham (Assistant Director of the National Youth Choir Great Britain) and Suzzie Vango (National Children’s Choir of Great Britain, Ex-Cathedra Girls’ Academy), to lead a free one-day workshop and informal performance for choristers in Birmingham.
The workshop was without notated music and there no advance preparation was required for the event. This gave choristers the chance to experience some different musical styles and ways of learning.
The workshop took place on Saturday 20th October 2018 at St Philip’s Cathedral, Colmore Row, Birmingham, B3 2QB from 10:30am to 4:30pm, with an informal concert at 5pm.
