The Tenebrae Effect: Music of the Spheres

  • Saturday 1st October 2016
  • 10:30 am
  • St John’s Smith Square

Would you like to find out what it takes to be a Tenebrae singer?

Join Tenebrae for an engaging and informative choral workshop, led by Artistic Director, Nigel Short. Tenebrae’s inspirational workshop method, ‘The Tenebrae Effect’, provides an insight into the elements that make Tenebrae’s sound and interpretation to music so unique. Workshop participants are instilled with skills essential to a Tenebrae performance through sessions designed to challenge and advance every participant.

The selection of part songs from the British Isles in this workshop will be featured on Tenebrae’s new CD release in October 2016.

The workshop will run 10:30 – 13:30. We advise that most value is brought to those with prior choral experience who wish to improve within smaller, focussed groups, and suggest participants should either be familiar with the scores or be confident sight-readers. Scores will be provided by Tenebrae on the day. Minimum age 16.

Friends and family are invited to join the workshop participants at 1.15pm for a free informal showcase of the morning’s work. Participants will be invited to sing one of the workshop pieces alongside Tenebrae at the beginning of the full choir rehearsal at 14:00 in St John’s Smith Square.
