13 April

Come & Sing Rossini’s delightful Petite Messe Solennelle in a rewarding, one-day choral workshop held in historic Worcester. The event offers the chance for singers of all kinds to explore one of the Romantic era’s most enjoyable choral works, under leading choirmaster Christopher Allsop.

As well as the singing sessions, there will be vocal tips, musical insights and an informal afternoon performance with soloists, which your guests can attend free of charge. You don't need choral experience to take part but some ability to read music will be useful.

Registration opens at 9.30am, with singing starting from 10:15am. The informal performance begins at 3.45pm, with the day concluding by 4.45pm. Plus plenty of refreshment breaks, tasty lunches (pre-order when booking) and cakes to tempt the tastebuds.

Tickets £22 (adults) and £10 (students), including score hire and free teas/coffees.
