Choral Workshops

It has been a long time since we have had the chance to sing in a group and we are delighted that we have been able to start a series of six two-hour choral workshops. These are at St Anne’s Church in Lewes on Sunday afternoons, and started on 11 October. Nick Houghton is conducting and leading us through the glorious music of Handel’s Acis and Galatea and Mozart’s Requiem. The two remaining workshops will be scheduled in the new year.

This series of workshops is fully subscribed, but do contact us if you would be interested in taking part in similar events in the future.

We have carried out a full health and safety check with the venue, and each session will be socially distanced in accordance with government rules. Participants must wear a mask when inside the church, except when singing, and maintain two metres distance between themselves and others.

If you have any queries please contact Tim at [email protected]
