The Details:

He is best known to Perth singers as the Director of the Queen’s University Choral Ensemble.

 The day will begin at 9:00 a.m. with vocal warm-ups, leading in to an introduction to a variety of sacred choral repertoire suitable to the seasons of the church year.  There will be a break shortly before 11:00 a.m. for an early lunch (participants may bring a bag lunch or take in one of the many restaurants a short walk away). Anyone wishing to take in the community Remembrance Day observations may do so if they wish.  The afternoon will continue with rehearsal of the repertoire introduced in the morning, culminating in an informal performance around 3:30 to which friends and family are invited.  

Following the workshop, participants are encouraged to stay on for some informal social time at a local pub.
