Verdi workshop

Hertford Choral Society will be performing the Verdi Requiem on Saturday March 30th 2019, and to prepare for the concert they are running a workshop to which visiting singers are invited. Derek Harrison, who will be remembered by many Guilders from the Royal Albert Hall concerts, will lead the workshop on Saturday March 2nd between 9.30am and 4.30pm at Richard Hale School, Hertford, SG13 8EN.

In the morning the focus will be on the more technical side of how to sing Verdi’s great music with distinguished vocal coaches Rebecca Outram (working with sopranos and altos) and Robert Rice (working with tenors and basses).
After lunch there will be a change - it is rumoured that a certain Mr Haydn may be involved. Then there will be a sing-through of the whole Verdi Requiem, with four soloists including Rebecca and Robert.

Registration for the workshop is essential. The charge for visiting singers is £10, or £15 to include the hire of music. If you are interested in coming along or finding out more, and are not a current member of HCS, please email
