    Ralph Vaughan Williams Workshop - Winchester. Winchester Music Club invites you to join us for a choral workshop followed by a run through performance exploring two of Vaughan Williams’ mini choral masterpieces. Composed in 1906, “Toward the Unknown Region” put Vaughan Williams on the map as a new and important voice in English music. It sets the words of the poem “Darest thou now, O soul” from Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass”. “Five Mystical Songs”, using a collection of poems by George Herbert, was composed over the next five years. The first four songs are quiet personal meditations with the final “Antiphon” a triumphant hymn of praise: “Let all the world in every corner sing”.
    The workshop will be led by David Thomas, Master of Music Winchester College and Music Director of Winchester Music Club, accompanied on the piano by Benjamin Cunningham with Andrew de Silva as baritone soloist.

    Choir Camp 2019 with Sheila Ferguson  - Dunfield House, Herefordshire. Following the success of previous weekends with Kiki Dee and Peter Straker, Choir Camp is back for a third year. This time we descend on the idyllic Dunfield House. 

    Commencing on the Friday evening, a delicious buffet of home-cooked food will be served as we mingle and settle in. We'll then sing a range of musical and vocal styles; I'm already busy writing six-part arrangements especially for the occasion. After some songs around the campfire and a nightcap or two, it'll be 'lights out' before waking up to a full English breakfast to set us up for a busy Saturday of music-making with my band. 

    Standing in some fifteen acres of rolling Welsh Border countryside, we have the exclusive run of the 19th-Century mansion. Requisitioned during World War II for the American forces, Dunfield House was a bolthole for Winston Churchill for high-level meetings and elaborate dinners. Nearby Hergest Ridge inspired Mike Oldfield's 1974 album of the same name and, according to local folklore, the chilling legend surrounding its Court was drawn upon by Arthur Conan Doyle for his classic 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'. There'll be time during the day to take a swim or wander through the labyrinth. In the evening, we will don our glad rags and, after a champagne reception, dance the night away as I host a black-tie party! 

    A Sunday roast will break up another day's singing, culminating in a very special afternoon session with the one and only Sheila Ferguson. Best known as lead singer of The Three Degrees on chart-topping hits in the 70s including 'When Will I See You Again', 'Woman in Love' and 'Take Good Care of Yourself', Ferguson was first signed as a solo artist by Swan Records in her hometown of Philadelphia. Since leaving the internationally renowned girl group once dubbed 'Charlie's Angels' because of their appeal to the Prince of Wales, Sheila has gone on to star in numerous theatre roles and television shows. Hot-footing it to us from Amsterdam's Johan Cruyff Arena, there she will perform a series of concerts with Dutch supergroup De Toppers to crowds of tens of thousands each night. An audience of local villagers will hear a run-through of our efforts and we'll say our goodbyes, until 2020. 

    As far as I'm concerned, there is no activity more inclusive than group singing so whether you're a complete beginner or seasoned professional, I invite you to join me in what promises to be yet another unforgettable experience." Matthew Jones, Conductor

    28 July - 4 August 2019

    Morland Choristers Camp is a week-long residential summer course, for children aged 9-18, who enjoy singing. Founded in 1971 by Canon Gervase Markham, it takes place each summer in the village of Morland in Cumbria and has grown from small beginnings into a thriving 100-strong course. Its unique feature is that over the years it has developed into an extended 'family', offering first-class choral training in the highest traditions of the Church but in the atmosphere of an adventure holiday.

    The week offers a busy, exciting mix of good music and good company. It is planned so that everyone has fun as well as working hard. There is a camping site for the boys, girls sleep in the Village Hall, and meals are taken in the school. A typical day has rehearsals in the morning and evening for a wide variety of music. Most afternoons are devoted to non-musical activities, for example a dam-building competition in a mountain stream or Morland's particular version of 'Sports Day'.

    Evensong is sung in Carlisle Cathedral on Friday, then on Saturday a concert in Penrith can include staged musicals, spirituals or chart hits. On the final Sunday, the Camp processes down the village street to morning Eucharist in the village church. Then, in the lunch for parents and friends culminates in a prize-giving, which includes an award for the most 'professional' chorister and the presentation of the group Challenge Cup. This leads on to the closing Choral Evensong, for which Morland Church is always packed.

    The Camp is endorsed by the Royal School of Church Music which runs chorister courses across the country. For more information and how to apply, visit morland.org.uk

    Choral Workshop on Lake Garda / Italy - Mozart's Coronation Mass - Choral Workshop with Concert - International Oratorio Choir
    The International Oratorio Choir (Artistic Director Peter Laskowski) is a project choir, with which you may again perform the oratorios you know in an international lineup. The Coronation Mass in C major (KV 317) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was most probably composed for the Easter service of 1779 at the Salzburg Cathedral. Immediately after his death this church composition, which was probably Mozart’s most popular, became the preferred mass setting for services at imperial and royal coronations as well as at thanksgiving services. The festive symphonic elements and the clear separation of solo and choir voices are typical of this mass. Through its musical expressiveness it surpasses all other Salzburg masses.

    Who can take part in the project?
     - groups of at least 10 persons

    What are the terms and conditions for singers?
    - own choral scores (published by Breitkopf & Härtel) of Coronation Mass (W. A. Mozart)
    - some rough knowledge of the piece (e.g. having worked through it yourself or indeed having performed it on a previous occasion)
    - commitment to attend all the rehearsals throughout the project phase
