We are delighted to host Singing Days when we are joined by guest singers to work together on a selected work. These are very popular, attracting around 100 additional singers to join us for the day.
The singing days are led by our very own Jeremy Jackman who has years of experience in running choral workshops.
In 2014 we introduced our new commission, John McCabe’s Psalm-Cantata, to a wider choral audience.
Singing day 2020
Registration for our singing day 2020 is now open.
The singing day will be for Haydn’s Stabat Mater and take place on 8th Feb 2020 from 10am – 5pm at St. Johns Waterloo. A special choir will be formed for the day, involving members of EBC and you, our guests. Jeremy Jackman – our music director – will be working intensively with us on the music and will provide historical context and performance insights. In his words:
In his lifetime, Stabat Mater was arguably Haydn’s best known sacred work, and we know that as the years went by, Haydn became increasingly proud of his achievement in this opus. It is full of beautiful melodies, occasionally dramatic and often poignant. This deeply expressive work deserves to be better known – by you ! Come and get acquainted (or reacquainted) alongside members of the English Baroque Choir at our ever-popular Singing Day.”
The cost is £20 regular, £10 for students up to 26 years. You can hire (£2) or buy (£8) a copy of the music if you tell us during your registration.
The singing days are very popular and get booked up quickly. Register today to reserve your place.
