Sing With Tenebrae

Posted on 11 September 2015

Have you ever wanted to find out what it takes to be a Tenebrae singer?

We’re delighted to be offering several new opportunities for singers to get involved with Tenebrae and to see ‘behind the scenes’.


Saturday November 7th, 2pm

On Saturday November 7th, join Tenebrae Artistic Director Nigel Short for an exciting choral workshop at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London. Tenebrae’s inspirational workshop method, ‘The Tenebrae Effect’, provides an insight into the elements that make Tenebrae’s sound and interpretation of music so unique. Through exploration of musicianship, breathing and the importance of leadership and communication, workshop participants are instilled with skills essential to a Tenebrae performance. Tenebrae’s workshops are designed provide singers with the opportunity to develop and refine their skills within smaller, focused ensembles through sessions designed to challenge and advance every participant. This makes for an inspiring experience for any singer.
