Would you like to find out what it takes to be a Tenebrae singer?
The Tenebrae Effect is Tenebrae’s inspiring choral development initiative that provides an insight into the elements which make Tenebrae’s sound and interpretation to music so unique. It is designed to challenge and advance every participant, whilst giving singers the opportunity to learn in a friendly and challenging environment alongside professional singers from the choir.
To make the most of Tenebrae’s inaugural Holy Week Festival, join Nigel and Tenebrae singers at St John’s Smith Square for what is set to be fascinating and informative morning, focusing on a selection of Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories. 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.
